This is the first I’m hearing about RFID technology. What is it?RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. A small electronic chip is embedded into a plastic card (your credit card, passport, access card, identification card). These chips contain information, many times very sensitive information. A chip embedded in a credit card can contain the credit card number, expiration date, name, address, etc. The chip is designed to respond to radio waves at a certain frequency. When the radio waves hit the chip, it triggers the chip into responding by electronically transmitting the data encoded on it.
RFID protection has been found to be effective, however, Shield Card®, LLC makes no warranties of any kind, either express or implied.
