What Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is, and why you may need it
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is embedded in billions of chip-enabled credit and debit cards, "wearable wallets," contactless point-of-entry keys and badges, smartphones, and other devices. The technology allows the user to wave the RFID product in front of a commercial reader during the point of sale (POS) or checkout, transmitting data wirelessly, thereby circumventing the need to physically swipe or connect the transaction with the authorized user.
However, these RFID chips may also allow tech-savvy thieves with commercially available card readers purchased online to remotely skim card data, and use it to commit payment and identity fraud, without ever laying a hand on the victim.
You can help to protect yourself because the same RFID technology that enables contactless payment, enables a contactless crime called electronic pick-pocketing.
Electronic pick-pocketing can take place in crowded areas like malls, airports, college campuses, sporting events, and other busy areas that allow thieves to operate, and the victims might never know it happened until they receive their credit card statement.
Help to save yourself the time and effort needed to clear up a growing identity and financial crime occurring in a world dominated by technology.Information provided by ID Stronghold.
