What is RFID

RFID is short for Radio Frequency Identification. Over the years, how we protect our data has continued to evolve with advancements in technology. RFID Blocking is part of this evolution that aims to bring safety and protection to our data. RFID is a type of wireless technology that identifies items or objects that are fitted with Radio Frequency identification tags.

Radio Frequency is the electromagnetic energy that is transmitted to electronically carry identification information from an RFID tag to its reader. This technology has been adopted in different industries due to its many benefits.

At Alpine Swiss, we pride ourselves in our ability to incorporate RFID blocking technology in our leather wallets. Our leather wallets with RFID blocking technology have been carefully crafted and fitted with RFID technology after rigorous testing providing you with the safety you need to protect all your cards in your wallet.

RFID Wallet As a Secure Type of Wallets

rfid-wallet-1-13.03.jpgWe know we must protect our passwords and personal information. However, without the right protection, your pockets can be easily compromised, and you could end up losing critical information without your knowledge. This is why RFID wallets are a secure type of wallet that aims to block any attempts to collect personal information from you without your authorization.

With RFID wallets, you can say goodbye to hiding your wallet in layers or even wrapping them in foil for protection. RFID wallets are crafted with a layer of carbon fiber that blocks the electromagnetic fields from getting to your cards. This protective layer of carbon fiber takes any incoming electromagnetic waves from the target's RFID scanner and shields entry into the wallet by spreading it all around the wallet. 

How RFID Protection Works

Using an Radio-Frequency Identification blocking wallet can help save you a lot of time and money down the line because it assures that you’re protected from scams using a skimming machine. The wallet works by blocking RFID skimmers from being able to transmit a signal to and from the RFID chips in your cards. The only way a wallet can assure RFID protection from skimming fraud is if it incorporates a layer of metallic protection within the fabric of the wallet. The metallic layer disrupts the skimming machines and disables the ability for the signal to transmit through the metal. The RFID proection in Alpine Swiss wallets can also be useful for protecting information that’s found on common ID cards and keyed entry cards. If a skimming thief is able to get ahold of the information on a keyed entry card, your home or office could be left exposed to other types of theft and burglary.

How to Choose an RFID Blocking Wallet for Men

While not everyone needs a wallet with RFID protection because not all cards contain these chips, it’s better to be safe than sorry if you think you may be at risk. Card skimming happens more often than people think, and there’s no way to know you’ve become a victim until it’s too late. Alpine Swiss has a large variety of RFID blocking wallets ranging from spring loaded to center fold and with many different capacity levels and fabric types. Protecting sensitive card information is easy with an RFID blocking wallet for men from Alpine Swiss.

Protect Your Valuable Information

Many cards and forms of ID also carry small chips within them called radio-frequency identification card (RFID). Those chips can transmit the information needed to make a purchase without swiping your card, making it much more efficient and simple. The drawback, though, is that it puts you at risk of a new type of pickpocketing called RFID skimming. When thieves use machines to walk through crowds and harvest RFID data they can easily get ahold of your credit card information without even touching you. There is a way to avoid falling victim to this problem, though, with an RFID wallet for men. These wallets are specially designed to block RFID scanners, protecting your sensitive information from skimmers.
