I was really nervous when I became aware of "digital skimming". I found out a crook can take my identity making use of the personal details stored on a few of my debit cards. The ones of most concern are those I can use at check outs with what I call the "wave and go" terminals.
Soon after, I found out my passport card was another risk as well! I determined I had to do something about it!
I did some research then went looking for something that would block the electromagnetic radiation. Considering that once secured the chips on the cards or in the passport never ever receive the signals, they are inaccessible. Without those signals, they have no power and can never ever send the information they hold.
I found these "RFID-blocking" folders on Amazon. I have experimented with my cards at the check out. As long as it is in its sleeve, the terminal never ever finds the card. This would coincide for any thief trying to read the cards in my pocket or read my passport card digitally without my knowledge. And even better: they are so small, they slip right into my favorite wallet with some extremely tight card slots. Genius!
