With thieves now being able to scan your personal data from a distance, identity theft is becoming more of an issue for travellers! This innovative RFID blocking passport pouch has a special RFID blocking layer, this helps to block ID scanners that are trying to obtain personal data from RFID chips within credit cards, passports and driving licenses. The RFID blocking neck pouch offers plenty of space for your passport, cards and cash with two compartments for safe and secure storage of your valuables. The passport pouch itself will fit your passport as well as money and other documents and features 2 zipped compartments at the front to keep cards and tickets separate. The pouch is made from soft and comfortable materials meaning you wont get itchy or irritated from wearing it. The neck strap is fully adjustable so you can hang it as low or as high as you like under or over your clothes.
RFID is the technology that allows you to wave your credit cards, passport or driving license in front of a scanner instead of swiping it's magnetic strip. The scanner sends a signal that is received by an embedded antenna inside your card, passport etc, this is connected to the card's RFID chip and will therefore activate the chip. Your data is stored on RFID chips inside items such as credit cards and passports, these chips can be read at a distance to make your life easier and more convenient. ID readers can be purchased for around £100 and are easy for thieves to obtain, allowing them to steal your personal and sensitive data with ease.
