30 Aug RFID Protection
Go Travel Passport Slip
Our wallets are full of RFID (Radio Frequency Enabled) credit cards that are constantly emitting all – unbeknownst to most of us – kinds of personal details about us and our finances. Sensitive information to be accessed by anyone with an electronic reader easily obtained on the internet. There are 20 million or so ‘scan‘ only credit cards in the UK, representing a big pool of crime for digitised villains. When we travel we are even more vulnerable; partly because modern passports are similarly RFID enabled, thus prone to identity theft.
