Faced with the upsurge of credit card piracy, we have now started to see adapted products that will secure your data and therefore your bank account.
What are the risks of RFID?
Your new credit cards now have a contactless payment system revolutionizes the way we shop, every day.
The problem however, is that these cards with integrated RFID (Radio Frequency Identification / Radio Frequency Identification) chips work with a wireless system that can be hacked. Thieves will steal your credit card numbers without having to touch your wallet.
Everything happens from the outside, through the materials of your purse or pocket.
This happens frequently today in public places such as railway stations, airports, monuments, cafes, cinemas, theatres … Credit cards are not the only ones involved, attacks can also affect our club cards (tennis, squash, gym, football field, ski pass, golf, etc.).
What is an effective solution?
The only solution against this type of invisible attack is to surround a bank card with a particular protective film that can block these wireless signals. To help protect our customers from this new risk, Maison Noreve has decided to take the lead and start creating several models of anti RFID / NFC (near field communication) leather products.
This article is composed of the material C12. Invented by Schlegel Electronic Materials, this material has required more than 20 years of research and development. C12 provides the best attenuation 97.4 dB and protection over a frequency range between 100 KHZ and 2GHZ (this range is used by RFID technology).
An anti-RFID texture protects you from “sniffers” who try to recover data from your credit / debit cards in public places. This texture is the most effective way against electronic theft and the protection of your banking and personal information. Chic and modern, these new essential accessories for our everyday life will gradually replace our old card holders to secure our banking data and allow us to move anywhere, with peace of mind!
The craftsmen of Maison Noreve offer you a very wide choice of colors and textures for the realization of your creation. All integrating anti-theft system and anti RFID features. Discover, the very first tested models below that combine elegance, sobriety, technology & safety.
