This virtually weightless passport cover is easy to slip over your passport so that you’re protected from RFID signals wherever you go. If your passport was issued after 2006, it contains an RFID chip. This means it sends signals at a certain frequency which readers are then able to scan. While most scanning is done by airport personnel and other government agencies, individuals can also buy personal readers and scan without your permission. Theyre then able to steal all the personal data stored on your passport, which can lead to identity theft and other forms of electronic pickpocketing. This simple shield will protect your information from unauthorized scanning. Its ultra-lightweight design allows you to store this inside your handbag, laptop case, or other piece of luggage. Despite being thin, its durable enough to resist the regular wear-and-tear of travel, and it resists moisture as well.
