I was very nervous when I heard about electronic pick-pocketing. I found out a thief can steal my identity making use of the personal details held on a few of my credit cards. The ones of most concern are those I can use at check outs with what I call the "tap and go" terminals.
Then, I found out my passport was vulnerable as well! I determined I had to do something about it!
I did some research and then went looking for something that would shut out the radio waves. Considering that once protected 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 transmit the datainfo they contain.
I discovered these "RFID-blocking" sleeves on Amazon. I have actually tried my cards at the check out. As long as it is in its sleeve, the terminal never identifies the card. This would be the same for any criminal trying to pick my pocket or read my passport electronically without my knowledge.
