With skimming on the rise, a better protection of your credit and identity cards is worth considering. Skimming is a technique used to illegally copy card data, even from a distance. Samsonite RFID-blocking wallets and backpacks protect against payment and identity fraud through skimming, by placing RFID-blocking material between the bag or wallet’s outer layer and internal lining.
What does RFID stand for?
RFID is the acronym for "Radio Frequency Identification" which is an advanced technology used to help identify data stored on various items such as passports and bank cards. However scammers can use unauthorised readers to scan and steal your private data from several feet away. Samsonite's blocking material ensures that these readers cannot get through to your private items when they are safely stored in one of our wallets or backpacks.
