“While technology makes our lives easier nowadays, there is always the chance that it can be used by individuals that want to take advantage of it and those using it. As of 2006, the U.S. government required all new passports to be outfitted with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips. While these chips store information that allows for better screening of travelers it also opens up the possibility that technology savvy criminals/terrorists can remotely steal your information and use it to their benefit. RFID chips are also in mobile phones and in some credit/debit cards, which means that your financial information is at risk too.
The RFID Blocking Passport Pouch allows the user to rest easy whenever traveling with small items that use RFIDs to store sensitive information. The outer fabric is lightweight tough Dyneema, the world’s strongest fabric, which is 15 times stronger than steel. It is waterproof, heat resistant, UV resistant, and it floats!”
