With advances in technology introducing contactless smart cards and passports, there has been a rise in concern about RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) theft. Without RFID shielding, thieves could steal your information and either use it to generate fake payments or for other scams. So, does your application require RFID protection? Here we look at the realities of RFID theft and whether you need to consider it.
Advances in technology can improve our lifestyle in many ways. Contactless payment technology has allowed us to quickly and conveniently pay for purchases at many shops and restaurants by simply holding our debit or credit card against an RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) scanner. It’s also accepted as a form of payment on some transport services, including TFL (Transport for London). This makes journeys quick and easy with a simple tap.
