RFID-Blocking Woven Stainless Steel Wallet


RFID-blocking Woven Stainless Steel Wallets: Bifold Wallet and Ladies Wallet

Are your credit cards betraying you? If you have RFID-enabled credit cards, identity thieves and blackhat hackers can steal your data straight out of your wallet (How easy is it? This Boing Boing TV episode revealed that all a hacker needs are about $8 worth of equipments!)

But never fear, the NeatoShop's got your back(side) with these woven stainless steel wallets from Stewart/Stand. The woven stainless steel - with threads three times thinner than the thickness of a piece of paper - creates a Faraday cage that block RFID-signals from ever leaving your wallet.

The wallet is a must for those who want privacy - plus, the woven stainless steel is soft like silk to the touch, safe for credit card magnetic strips and is darned sleek!

Does it come with a matching tinfoil hat?

Anyone that pats my ass with a RFID reader better buy me dinner first.

The range is limited and most banks encrypt the card number.

I'll buy UFO abduction insurance before I worry about readers sniffing anything important from my wallet.

While the RFID protection is an advantage, a client of mine has one of these and it is simply a great wallet. Slips smoothly in and out of your pocket. Does not absorb moisture from your body so bills stay crisp. Looks cool and starts conversations.

Nobody has to pat your ass to get your credit card information. Less than fifty dollars gets you a portable reader from the internet and you only need to be in proxmity of a purse or wallet to collect the card's data. Chances are small that this will happen to you but so are the chances of a house fire and most of us have fire insurance. I think this is a great idea.

A little pricey if you get bottom of the barrel stuff, but much cheaper than having your identity stolen or your credit card cloned.
