Identification chips bring added value in many areas. Not only can one deal with modern documents identify online. Also a smart one RFID-supported cat flap brings many advantages. However, RFID technology in the form of NFC (Near Field Communication) is also included in credit cards and EC cards. This enables contactless payment at the supermarket checkout and in many other shopping scenarios; but also the secret debiting of amounts via mobile payment devices by fraudsters. I have RFID blockers for you in this post presented. The following will deal with the corresponding wallets, i.e. wallets with NFC read protection.
A so-called "RFID wallet" is a wallet that is equipped with materials that prevent radio technology and that protects against the reading of data and the debiting of money. The protection applies both to the ID, whose data cannot be read, and to credit and debit cards, from which no bookings can be made. A fraudster with a mobile device or smartphone cannot carry out his plan through his pocket, backpack or handbag. Below are a few examples of wallets with RFID protection, the right wallet for women and men, and more.
The “GenTo Men’s Wallet Dublin” is a wallet with TÜV-tested RFID and NFC protection. The model with card compartments, viewing windows, compartments for coins and notes is available in different colors such as black, brown and blue. Of course, women can also use it. Details, pictures and the possibility to buy the RFID protection wallet, can be found with this link.
There is a wallet that is advertised as a women's wallet or wallet with this link. The assignment to women as buyers is probably due to the larger, long shape. The RFID wallet with NFC protection, available in black, blue, rose, lilac, yellow and brown, offers space for cards, banknotes, a small pen and a zipped compartment for coins.
Lifeventure also offers a flexible unisex wallet with NFC and RFID protection. It is important to know that there is no zipped compartment for change. So if you do without it and pay mainly with cards and banknotes, you should go with it this link to the product page take a look at the simple but handsome model for women and men.
Meanwhile, Tatonka offers a kind of mini version of an RFID protection wallet. The wallet with NFC-inhibiting materials offers space for a few cards and ID. There is also a viewing window and a zipped compartment for coins and bills, or only the latter. The mini wallet is a good wallet for travel, vacation, everyday life and all other occasions in which coins do not play a major role. It fits in every pocket, handbag and backpack. You can of course view and buy it through this product page.
Similarly space-saving, but with more space, muds this model of Tasmanian Tiger at. The wallet, which you can buy in olive and black, also fits in all bags and backpacks as well as in not too small trouser pockets. A clear compartment for ID or family photo, card compartments, a note compartment and a coin compartment with Velcro are included. The whole thing can be closed securely with a zipper; practical for women, men and children.
From large wallets for women to mini wallets for everyone, there are all kinds of wallets with RFID protection. In addition to those made of real leather, there are also enough alternatives made of high-quality artificial leather and sturdy fabric. They are all suitable for everyday use and vacation as well as for stowing in bags and backpacks. In large crowds and notorious tourist areas, the security of documents and money must of course also be taken into account; not only digitally via RFID blocker, but also in physical form with regard to theft. You can view and order the presented RFID blocking wallets with the given links.
