Stewart Stand Stainless Steel Wallets Block Unauthorised RFID Transmissions From Your Cards
Protect Your Identity
WHAT IS RFID? RFID stands for Radio-Frequency IDentification. The acronym is used in reference to small electronic devices composed of a small chip and antenna. This chip provides a unique identifier for that object and can be scanned to retrieve the identifying information.
WHY DOES IT MATTER TO YOU? It's a modern world and access to advances in technology that create conveniences are instantaneous. The RFID chip is one example. With a wave of your card, wallet or key-chain, RFID enables us to complete speedier purchases, bypassing lengthy ID procedures. Given the technology's speed and ease to communicate information, RFID devices are now incorporated into credit cards and passports, without the requisite consumer data protected. Information that can be obtained from these chips include: name, billing zip, cc number, exp date, csv/cvv, personal passport data. This information is not protected and can be accessed without the owner's knowledge or authorization.
OUR DESIGN SOLUTION: RFID Stewart/Stand Stainless Steel Wallets and Accessories create a barrier protecting the data from unauthorized access. We call this RFCID technology: Radio-Frequency Canceling IDentification.
The blocking technology of our wallets and accessories applies, without exception, to the Business & Travel Collection and the Womens Wallet & Handbag Collection. Additionally, we often conceal our most secure information in our carry bags... our eBooks, Tablets, iPads, iPhones & PDAs. Information from blue tooth enabled electronics or smart phones can not be accessed when placed inside our stainless steel design.
