Anyone concerned about a malicious third-party being able to access the content on their credit cards now that contactless payments have been enabled. May be interested in a new device which offers protection for contactless cards in the form of RFIDsecur.
RFIDsecur is a small credit card sized sheet that can be inserted into your existing wallet and helps protect your contactless payment cards from being accessed without your knowledge.
Check out the video below to learn more about this simple solution to keeping your wallet and credit card secure from external third parties accessing your data.
As contactless payment cards are incredibly easy for people to use, they are also incredibly easy for others to make use of illicitly. Even. ‘WHICH’ magazine acknowledges that this is a problem, saying “It’s vital to protect consumers from fraudsters who have the knowhow to develop mobile card readers with much greater reading distances than those used by retailers.”
It’s not just about credit and debit cards – identity or access cards can be compromised – should your cards be cloned, the cloner will have your personal information and the same rights of access as you do.
