What is RFID? Quoted from Wikipedia: Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the wireless use of electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. RFID tags are used in many industries, especially in the payment card industry.
How did the RFID protection card holder work?
Keep in mind that RFID stands for Radio-frequency identification, which is the wireless use of electromagnetic fields to transfer data. A person with the intent to steal your valuable information through an RFID scanner in close proximity to your valuable cards can only potentially scan cars of yours that have a magnetic strip, ie debit cards, credit cards, building access proximity cards and other similar such cards. While your Social Security Card is VERY valuable to you, the number cannot be read via an RFID scanner because it is simply a piece of paper with a number on it. So there is no need to protect it in an RFID sheath. However, I am aware that some do have magnetic strips.
The Holder does not block RF signals like those used in RFID. The RF signals are blocked by the metal (such as aluminum) using an electromagnetic device known as a Faraday Cage. The metal creates an area which is impervious to external RF waves, making it impossible to read the RFID cards. The pockets are merely there for organization purposes.
New Gift Package:
A very nice gift box replaces the previous carton box. This new gift package will protect the RFID Blocking Card Holder better. Best choice if you are looking for a gift.
Very nice look and shape, comfortable in the pocket. A lock is a little bit tight in comparison to my previous wallet but this is a benefit for me. It's very sturdy, I have dropped it multiple times and it never sprang open, dented, or scratched, so to me, it was money well spent.
A bit heavier than expected! Cost vs appearance provides value. Durability will be determined when I start using it, even though it feels sturdy!
I love this case so much. It's so convenient and light. easy to carry and clean. It helps me keep my cards very safe and easy to take out. because it's metal so it's very easy to clean. the other good thing is that It helps to block RFID.
Great protection for cards and durable. It's a high-quality RFID card holder. It's perfect to carry in your purse and quick to locate even though it's small.
Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase!
The card holder looks nice and performs as advertised. Love the color, size and sleek look of the case. Excellent for every day and for that small evening purse. Fits all my cards perfectly.
