Prevents "Electronic Pickpocketing" of RFID Embedded Electronic Information in New Credit Cards, Drivers Licenses and Passports.
Since 2005, credit card companies such as Chase Bank began introducing their RF Credit Card and coined the term "Blink" technology. These "contactless" cards could be simply waved in front of an RFID enabled point of sale terminal.
The benefits of RFID credit card transactions are convenience, speed and the elimination of employee contact with the card. To minimize accidental reading of these cards, they are designed to be read at a distance of one to four inches from the reader.However, technology allows an RF enabled card to be "hi-jacked" by use of an unauthorized RFID scanner, and then the information used for fraudulent purposes.
Easily obtainable small hand held scanning devices can read your data through your wallet or purse to illegally, gain access to your personal and financial data that can result in identity theft. CNN reported that some RFID chips can be read from as far as 10 feet away. To learn more about how RFID hackers can obtain electronic information from your passport, read this CNN story from their website.
That where the use of the RFID Blocking Boarding Pass Case comes into play. By placing your RF enabled cards into this case, they are protected from being “hi-jacked” by an unauthorized person.
What kind of electronic information is inside your new passport?
All newly issued U.S. passports and many credit cards now include an RFID (radio frequency identification data) chip which holds your personal information. In US passports, the chip stores the same information that is printed within the passport and includes a digital picture of the owner. The chips are meant to cut down on human error of immigration officials, speed the processing of visitors, and safeguard against counterfeit passports.
The RFID Blocking Boarding Pass and ID Holder is a great solution to shield your RF information.
Does Your U.S. Passport Contain the RFID Chip?
Since August 2007, the U.S. has been issuing only e-passports. While older passports are still valid, when they expire, they will be replaced with the new e-passport. The cover to the right is a photograph of what the new cover of the US e-passport looks like. Note the logo on the bottom of the cover.
