Orlando, FL —Dec. 01, 2015 — RFID Vault spokesperson, Kate Rutherford, announced that the launch sale on Amazon for the company’s RFID sleeves far exceeded the firm’s anticipated sales. The specially designed sleeves prevent information contained within radio frequency identification (RFID) chips embedded in credit cards and passports from being transmitted to hackers using portable scanning technology.
“Hackers are very sophisticated and people don’t even know when their card and passport information is being skimmed,” said Rutherford. “RFID sleeves protect the information from being hijacked.”
RFID Vault sleeves utilize a powerful aluminum alloy inner lining under the surface sleeve that blocks intrusions by portable RFID scanners. The unique metal composite that’s used provides maximum protection, preventing costly fraudulent charges and the time-consuming effort of reversing those transactions. Each package contains 12 sleeves for credit cards and 2 for passports that require no cutting or trimming for a secure fit.
Hackers use radio frequencies to activate RFID chips that are embedded in passports, credit cards and driver’s licenses. Those same chips can be found in access cards to employment, garages and homes. Depending on the type of card, the RFID chip may contain Social Security and phone numbers, employment information, addresses and financial data.
RFID Vault provides individuals with peace of mind knowing hackers can’t harvest personal data. The sleeves are thin and lightweight, yet provide the ultimate in personal privacy protection for cards and passports. They offer a superior level of protection when traveling and are beneficial for everyday use.
RFID scanners can skim information from as little as a few inches to 300 feet, depending upon the strength of the scanner. Unauthorized RFID scanning is a type of identity theft that can provide criminals with access to financial information and a variety of personal data. Sophisticated RFID scanners are small enough to be concealed in backpacks, purses, briefcases and diaper bags without surrounding individuals being any wiser.
RFID scanners use radio frequencies to activate RFID chips. RFID Vault sleeves create a Faraday cage that surrounds cards and passports with an invisible screen that blocks access by rogue scanning technology for safety and privacy protection.
Consumers around the world have taken advantage of the protection offered by RFID Vault sleeves, resulting in launch sales that far exceeded the company’s expectations. The sleeves provide individuals with an effective and affordable means of identity theft protection at home and when they travel (http://amazon.com/RFID-Blocking-Sleeves-Protector-Protection/dp/B0150T0AI2/).
