I was extremely stressed when I found out about "digital skimming". I learned a criminal can steal my identity using the personal details stored 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 "wave and go" terminals.
Then, I learned my passport card was vulnerable as well! I just knew 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 secured the chips on the cards or in the passport never ever get the signals, they are inert. Without those signals, they have no power and can never ever send the datainfo they contain.
I found these "RFID-blocking" folders on Amazon. I have actually experimented with my cards at the checkout. As long as it is in its sleeve, the terminal never ever finds the card. This would be the same for any thief trying to pick my pocket or read my passport card digitally without my authorization. Even better: they are so small, they fit my old favorite wallet with some mighty tight card slots. Genius!
