Blog Header Rfid

The newest generation of bank or credit cards are equipped with a radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology. This means that you can pay contactless (for all amounts under 25€) by keeping your bank card nearby a payment terminal using that same RFID technology. But this contactless technology involves risks. Fraudsters can scan your cards and steal your money or your identity. Read here how can you protect your bank or credit cards from digital pick pocketing.

1. Protect your cards in an RFID blocking wallet

A good way to protect your cards is to buy an RFID blocking wallet. This type of wallet contains a layer made from carbon fiber or metal. This special layer inside the wallet blocks the electromagnetic fields from reaching your RFID cards. As the RFID technology becomes more and more incorporated in our lives, more and more wallets will become RFID protective. You can buy these wallets already in your nearest MISTER MINIT shop.

2. Use a Card Shield Protector

If you don’t have an RFID blocking wallet yet you can use a MISTER MINIT’s Card shield Protector. This is a card that creates a surrounding electronic protective field to make all your bank cards invisible to nearby scanners. This Card Shield is easy to use and doesn’t need batteries to work.

You just need to place this card between your other cards in your wallet or in your pocket to be protected. MISTER MINIT offers a double pack with 2 blocking cards. If your wallet isn’t thicker than 4 cm, you can use the second card as a gift for a loved one.
