Can RF and RFID devices be used to steal my credit card information?

0 minutes, 37 seconds Read

RF and RFID devices can be used to steal credit card information through a process called skimming. Skimming is the act of using a device to read the information stored on the magnetic stripe or chip of a credit card. Thieves can use handheld skimming devices or install skimming equipment on ATMs or gas pumps to steal credit card information.

However, there are now many products available that offer RFID blocking technology, such as RFID blocking sleeves, wallets, and cards. These products use materials that block the RF signals, preventing them from being picked up by skimming devices. It is important to take measures to protect your credit card information to avoid falling victim to identity theft and fraud.
