Protect your Identity from RFID Pickpockets


This morning on the news a reporter was talking about the modern high tech pick pockets. Most consumers are not aware of what of their bank cards are RFID enabled. This leaves us exposed to thieves walking buy with a small handheld and literally stealing the money out of our wallets without us even knowing. To add insult to injury you can purchase a RFID online for as little as $100.

Even if you don’t have a credit card, information on critical IDS such as the new enhanced driver’s licenses can also be skimmed with RFID readers. Anyone who has been the victim of identity theft knows it is a nightmare to get resolved.

The folks at Humn have designed a wallet made out of Carbon fiber material that can protect your bank cards from RFID scanning.
