RFIDsafe technology protects your credit card and passport information
RFID chips can be found in most passports, credit cards and public transport tickets (like London's Oyster card and Melbourne's Myki). The RFID chip in the card emits radio transmissions that make them easy to use, but this also means that they can be read or downloaded by thieves by using a hand-held RFID reader from up to 3m away. All the information on your passport including your name, date of birth, digital photograph, issue and expiry date as well as biometric information can be accessed from your passport and the account name, issue date, expiry date and account number can be taken from your credit cards.
The best way to protect yourself from identity theft is to keep your passport and credit cards in an RFIDsafe wallet that is designed to block RFID readers from accessing your data.
