If your debit cards or otherwise are contactless enabled they will hold precious information within a chip present on the card. This chip also contains an antenna that picks up power from a signal sent out by a card reader. The card reader and contactless card are then able to communicate on a 13.56MHZ radio wave signal when in close proximity. While this is great for convenience it is not so great when a low-life criminal has a scanner. Fortunately, there is a very simple way to keep your identity and information secure with the Phantom Cloak (RFID Protection Card)
The Phantom Cloak card works by drawing power from the scanner and emitting a counter-signal to jam the communication. This protects the surrounding cards within a 5cm radius. It's the same size as a standard credit card so will fit easily in your wallet or purse. It is however slightly thicker at 1.2mm vs the usual 0.76mm of a normal card.
The Phantom Cloak will block any cards working on 13.56MHz frequency. This includes but is not limited to:
- Credit cards
- Debit cards
- ID Cards
- Mobile Phone NFC
- Key Cards/ Entry Cards
