I was very nervous when I heard about electronic pick-pocketing. I found out a thief can steal my identity utilizing the personal info held on a few of my debit cards. The ones of most concern are those I can make use of at check outs with what I call the "tap and go" terminals.
Soon after, I found out my passport was another risk as well! I just knew I must do something about it!
I did some research then went trying to find sleeves that would shut out the electromagnetic radiation. Since once secured the chips on the cards or in the passport never get the signals, they are inert. Without those signals, they have no power and can never transfer the datainfo they contain.
I discovered these "RFID-blocking" sleeves on Amazon. I have tried my cards at the checkout. As long as it is in its sleeve, the terminal never detects the card. This would be true for any criminal attempting to select my pocket or read my passport electronically without my authorization.
