WELCOME TO VAULT RFID PROTECTED ™
Vault RFID Protected Wallets are committed to protecting your RFID cards from Electronic Pickpocketing, where information stored on your cards is stolen without your knowledge. Many credit & debit cards, as well as some store cards & workplace security cards, incorporate RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) through a tiny antennae & chip which is embedded in the card. If your card has Paypass ™ Pay Wave ™ or a little radio symbol then you have RFID on your card.
RFID equipped credit & debit cards are designed to make transactions simpler & quicker, eliminating the need to swipe cards & sign for purchases under certain limits. These limits vary according to the provider.
At the point of sale, a card reader remotely scans your RFID card using radio waves, eliminating the need to insert, swipe or even touch your card to the reader. Workplace security & other RFID cards work in the same way through remotely reading information stored on your card.
However, criminals now have portable RFID readers, easily obtained on the internet, enabling them to walk around & read some RFID cards remotely – even when they are inside a wallet or bag. This is known as “Electronic Pickpocketing”.
There are 3 ways to stop Electronic Pickpocketing:
1.Take out the RFID Antennae – this is difficult & renders the card useless for legitimate purchases.
2.Wrap your credit card in metal foil to block the radio transmission.
3.Use a VAULT RFID PROTECTED ™ Wallet!
Vault RFID Protected wallets incorporate a specially developed metallic layer sandwiched between the leather & the lining which blocks radio waves & effectively stops your RFID card being read until it is removed from your wallet. This prevents any chance of unauthorised scanning of your RFID cards & access to your personal information stored on them. With Vault, your cards are always securely protected from unauthorised access.
