Credit cards, passports, and other identification contain Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips that can store your personal information. Within the large zippered compartment of the utility pack are three additional RFID blocking pockets. Place your credit cards, passport, drivers license/ID, or cell phone inside these pockets to block RFID signals. This will help protect the items from ‘skimmers’ using RFID card readers in the 10-3 thousand megahertz range of frequencies from potentially stealing your information by reading the RFID chips.
Please note: placing your cell phone in these pockets may block the signal and calls could go to your voicemail. Due to advancements in 5G cellular technology, the pockets may still allow some phone signals to get through.
The entire backside of the pack is also lined internally with RFID blocking material. This protects you and your body against negative electromagnetic waves which come from small devices such as laptops, cell phones, tablets, etc.
