RFID Blocking Wallets
How does an RFID-blocking wallet work? Most recently issued credit cards, passports, and even medical cards and other forms of ID incorporate a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip. This is an advanced technology using a small data chip that allows the transfer of YOUR personal information by use of radio frequency waves. Your card does not need to be swiped on the back strip to read your personal information. Rather, it is available in the open air to thieves who possess electronic credit card readers that are in close proximity to your wallet or purse. This means that YOUR sensitive information can be obtained in a matter of seconds, usually without you ever knowing it—until it is too late. For this reason, WalletBe has developed a full line of our most fashionable, functional wallets, purses, passport wallets, and covers with protective RFID-blocking technology to protect your information and prevent it from getting into the wrong hands.
