It is still a fact that 90% of people have not heard of, or understand the term RFID and how it affects their personal security and the safety of their hard earned money. Because of this, being able to protect themselves is even less of a concern. What most of the 90% do share however is a need to carry cash and credit cards on their person every time they leave their house so that those credit cards or cash is available to them when needed.
Most men carry a wallet of some description and the most popular wallet for men is an all leather bi-fold wallet that allows them to carry cash, ID and their credit cards. So it is not surprising that the bi-fold all leather mans wallet should be the focus for security manufacturer Hugh B Hamilton when producing a designer wallet with hidden tech that protects the user from a threat many do not know exists.
In a statement today by Hugh B Hamilton, they continued their awareness campaign aimed at the public to highlight the use of RFID in credit cards, what the technology is, it’s dangers and what simple steps people can take to protect themselves from having their credit card information from being stolen by digital pickpockets without their knowledge leaving them vulnerable to having their identity and money stolen before they even know a problem exists. (Neil I am wondering if we could have 3-4 sentences in a paragraph so it makes it easier for the reader. I find I need to read this a couple of times to get the gist of it. The usual rule is for shorter sentences especially these days when people have a short concentration span – and maybe that’s me after a 10 hour day!)
A spokesperson for Hugh B Hamilton explained, “We have built in the tech necessary to protect a person’s credit cards into the designer wallet because it helps to reduce the impact on the user’s life. Most men carry a wallet. So by carrying a Hugh B Hamilton designer wallet nothing has changed for them. The difference is that now they will have RFID blocking protection whereas before they were vulnerable to having their information stolen.”
The dangers of RFID and its growing use in credit cards are highlighted in a news report video that explains what RFID is and how easily your cards can be accessed. Watch the short video to get the facts.
RFID stand for Radio Frequency Identification and is used by credit card companies whose card allows you to pay for goods without the need for inserting your card into a reader and entering your PIN. To achieve this ‘contactless’ payment the credit card sends out a radio wave frequency signal that the reader in the shop can identify and read your personal information. The problem is that the credit card is permanently send out the signal 24/7 and criminals with the right equipment can pick up you details in the same way that a shop would by just passing you on the high street.
