Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Blocking

From personal experience in the US, we are seeing more and more locations such as restaurants and cafes that are now using credit card chip readers not requiring you to swipe or insert your card.  You simply tap your card on the sensor or move it close to the sensor and it will read your card's information.

Since August 2007, all U.S. passports now come embedded with an RFID chip, intended to deter fraud and improve security. The chip contains the same information as on the passport's picture page, including a digital version of your passport photograph.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically-stored information.

Here is the problem

Thieves can carry portable RFID Readers and all they have to do is get close to you when passing by for it to instantly read your card or passport information.

If you see a symbol of radio waves on your credit card, it's likely RFID enabled.

Helping to protect your cards and passport from readers are RFID Blocking Sleeves.

If you search, you will find numerous articles on RFID Blocking technology.  You can read and decide for yourself if you want the added protection.  Some articles state you are able to block RFID Readers by simply wrapping foil around your cards but we find the sleeves more convenient and practical.  The bottom line is, if you are concerned about it, why take the chance?  Play it safe and slip your card into a Blocking Sleeve and forget about them.
