The rosemary RFIDsafe W250 RFID-Blocking Travel Organizer from Pacsafe is designed not only to hold travel essentials such as a passport, boarding pass, itinerary, or cash, it also provides a generous amount of space for credit cards and debit cards while protecting any such items with an embedded Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip from being accessed by an unauthorized RFID reader.
Current credit or debit card designs now feature an RFID chip that stores the personal and financial data typically associated with any credit or debit card and allows that information to be easily accessed by a specialized radio transmitter. In a retail setting, this can help make shopping more convenient by simplifying and speeding up the check-out process. Similarly, many passport designs also feature an RFID chip that stores the passport holder's image, name, nationality, gender, date of birth, and place of birth. That RFID chip also allows that information to be accessed by a radio transmitter and is intended to improve passport security by making it more difficult to tamper with or forge passports.
Unfortunately, identity thieves in possession of a transmitter that is capable of broadcasting and receiving an RFID signal may read and record your credit card, debit card, or passport's information without your knowledge.
To prevent this type of identity theft, this RFID-blocking organizer provides a way to store and carry your travel essentials and payment cards while preventing RFID signals from reaching them. The walls of the organizer feature a copper-nickel weave that prevents electromagnetic radiation, including radio waves, from reaching its contents.
Inside this RFIDsafe W250 RFID-Blocking Travel Organizer are two open pockets that can hold currency or boarding passes, nine open card slots, including one with a mesh window to display identification such as a driver's license; one passport slot with a mesh window, as well as a pen holder. For documents or cards that you wish to further secure within the organizer, a card-sized internal zipper compartment is provided, plus a larger zippered pocket that sits behind both the ID and passport slots. A zippered coin pocket is featured on the outside of the organizer, and a detachable strap is also provided that can be secured around one's wrist or clipped to a key ring on or within a bag.
