These are the same RFID Blocking Credit Card Sleeves that you've seen on TV news reports which stop “electronic pickpocketing.”
Did you know that most credit cards, driver's licenses, transit cards, government identification cards, school, hospital, and company identification cards, all passports and passport cards have a Radio-Frequency-Identification chip embedded inside them? These chips carry your personal information.
Thieves can easily purchase RFID scanners online or build their own to steal your information right through your regular purse or wallet up to 10 feet away from you! They just need to walk past you with a handheld scanner to capture your personal information. RFID blocking technology has been tested and approved by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. They help protect you from identity theft by preventing communication with an RFID reader while the card is in its RFID Blocking Sleeve.
RFID Blocking Sleeves Protect RFID Enabled:
Contactless Credit Cards
RFID Enabled Drivers Licenses
US Passport Cards
Most public transportation cards
Government PIV ID cards

RFID chips embedded in passports and passport cards allow authorities, government employee and vendors (like airlines) to scan your passport quickly during boarding and passport stations – some of which can scan your information from a distance to make border crossing a little faster.
That's the good news about RFID, however, if you do not protect your credit cards, identification cards, or passports your information can be stolen with the same technology.

Electronic Pickpocket Protection FAQ
What card types will the sleeves shield, and what card types will the product not shield?
The patented RFID Blocking Credit Card and Passport Sleeves are designed to shield all contactless credit cards, passports, drivers licenses, ISO 14443A/B and EPC Gen1/Gen2 contactless smart cards; any contactless card that operates at 13.56 Mhz and above. It does not shield non-smart cards (older 125khz proximity cards). On cards that include a secondary 125 kHz antenna added for backward compatibility, only the new 13.56 Mhz interface is shielded. The 13.56 Mhz interface is generally the only one with personal data.
What card types are NOT protected by RFID card shields?
RFID Shields DO NOT shield these types of cards:
- Older "prox" cards, HID 125 kHz. Includes: ProxCard II, ISOProx II, DuoProx II, Smart ISOProx II, Smart DuoProxII, ProxCard Plus
- Indala FlexISO, FLexCard, Flex Tag Below is a list of the card types that are shielded and ones that are not shielded by the Secure Badgeholder and Secure Sleeve.
