The ScannerGuardCard® is the size of a credit card, and is designed to protect personal information stored on credit cards, debit cards, smartcards, RFID driver’s licenses and any other RFID Cards from e-pickpocket thieves using handheld RFID scanners.
The ScannerGuardCard® is composed of a mixture of metals that disrupt the scanner from reading the RFID signals. There are outside and inside coatings of our patented metal mixture for protection of RFID personal information. This coating is not rigid, so the card is very flexible.
Wireless identity theft, also known as contactless identity theft or RFID identity theft, is a form of identity theft described as “the act of compromising an individual’s personal identifying information using wireless (radio frequency) mechanics. Basically, for around $40 a thief can purcahse a RFID scanner, conceal it in a bag and when they walk past you they can scan your wallet or purse for credit cards, debit cards, smartcards, RFID drivers licenses and any other RFID card.
To prevent this, simply slide the ScannerGuardCard® into your wallet. Sandwich your credit cards between the ScannerGuardCard®s.
