STAY ONE STEP AHEAD
OF THE BAD GUYS
OUTSMARTS UNAUTHORIZED RFID READERS
YOUR RFID/NFC RADIO CHIPS ARE TOO CHATTY
Your data and so your digital privacy and integrity might be at risk.
RFID/NFC tags (transponders) are invisibly embedded in credit cards, debit cards, identity cards, access control cards, key cards, car sharing, bike sharing and electronic mobility cards, drivers licences, smart keys (car), railway tickets, transit tickets, hotel cards, shopping cards, proximity cards, contactless smart cards and passports.
These RFID/NFC chips are passive and store personal and financial data.
They are powered by the electromagnetic energy transmitted from RFID readers (for example payment terminals) for communication and can thereby be scanned at distances (radio transmission).
Watch out for this symbols: If your NFC cards, the payment terminal or your RFID passport
have one of these symbols, you are at risk
Once activated by RFID readers, RFID transponders automatically send their data to all RFID readers in their surrounding, also to the unauthorized ones. Even worse these RFID tags cannot be deactivated.
As this radio transmission technology spreads and progresses, security and privacy threats also evolve (electronic pickpocketing, RFID skimming, NFC scanning).
SAFEGUARDING YOU FROM ELECTRONIC DATA AND IDENTITY THEFT, PAYMENT FRAUD AND ACCIDENTAL PAYMENTS
Prevent unauthorized access by blocking illegal RFID readers.
Stay one step ahead with electromagnetically opaque card sleeves, passport covers and holders, pouches, wallets, card cases, handbags, bags, daypacks, backpacks and travel accessories with award winning RFID blocking material from CRYPTALLOY.
The unique material blocks radio transmission for all common frequencies (for example 125KHz, 13.56MHz, 800-950MHz) and so stops unwanted RFID scanners from eliciting responses from these RFID chips and gaining access to your data.
It even protects your EMV chip from damage.
CRYPTALLOY doesn't deactivate or destroy the radio transmission chip, it only keeps it silent (and hidden), as if it were off. RFID chip stealth mode technology at its best.
By removing the card or passport from a CRYPTALLOY data vault/safe (for example pocket or compartment of a wallet), the RFID/NFC transponders is immediately ready for data transmission and emits RFID signals to the appropriate RFID reader.

RFID? NFC? RFID blocking material? How does CRYPTALLOY work?
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. NFC stands for Near Field Communication.
Both technologies are used very widely because of its benefits (for example contactless payment, access control, border crossing).
A RFID chip is invisibly embedded into smart cards, car keys and passports to store, communicate and transfer information by means of radio transmission.
Although RFID provides shoppers and travellers with the convenience they want, there is definitely a compromise with respect to security.
As RFID uses electromagnetic, i.e. radio waves to communicate data and information, they risk the chance of having data and information stolen contactlessly by electronic pickpocketing (RFID skimming, RFID scanning) with a (illegal) RFID reader via radio transmission.
This is where RFID protection with CRYPTALLOY RFID blocking material comes into play.
This smart high tech material prevents RFID readers from tapping into the radio transmission and reading out and so stealing data and informations from the RFID tag (RFID transponder). The CRYPTALLOY film is scientifically proved for all RFID frequencies.

RFID technology in combination with CRYPTALLOY?
With RFID/NFC technology travellers and shoppers are discovering an inherent trade-off that must be overcome to achieve a balance between convenience, data protection and privacy. CRYPTALLOY RFID blocking material is an essential component in mastering the risks. It isolates RFID chips from its surrounding.
Manufacturers as partners of CRYPTALLOY
As RFID/NFC technology becomes more important to our lives with smart cards (contactless payment), smart keys and passports, electronic pickpocketing (RFID skimming), data theft, payment fraud, accidental payment, card clashes and transaction interferences become more of threat.
To counter that threat and so to prevent unwanted and incorrect RFID scanning, manufacturers offer to their customers a value adding security feature by using a technical RFID barrier.
They embed/incorporate the unique RFID blocking material of the brand CRYPTALLOY into its products as an inner layer. This material guarantees shielding performance and screen attenuation at the highest level and so keeps your personal data and financial information private, secure and safe. It blocks the communication between RFID tag and RFID reader.
These manufacturers in combination with a rigorous quality management system ensure that you benefit of the advantages of RFID/NFC-technology without renouncing safety and protection of your valuable data.
