RFID Protection Sleeves Help Keep Your Information Secure

With so many things to worry about in life, the last thing we need is another things on that list. I try to do anything I can to make my life easier and that includes protecting my bank, debit and credit card account safe from prying eyes.

It is one thing to avoid unsafe sites or use only secure checkouts when shopping online, but how can you guarantee those same kinds of protection while out in the stores? Yes, you can carry cash, but that has risks of it's own, so what do you do?

One way you can help avoid someone getting your information is to use RFID blocking sleeves on all your cards. It only takes a second for someone to walk by and scan you without you even knowing it happened. These simple to use protector sleeves feature multiple layers designed to block the handheld scanners often used to steal your account information. A layer of aluminum and a copper substrate layer are covered by the outer paper layer, but you would never know it by looking at them. These compact little sleeves are small enough to fit into most card slots with the card inside them, so you don't even have to change wallets or card holders.

I don't have one of the tools used to steal numbers, so I cannot prove that these work 100%, but to me, if something this small and simple can help prevent it in any way, it is well worth giving it a try.
