RFID chips are commonplace, and with the growing popularity of contactless credit cards, the potential for fraud has risen too. Statistics from Financial Fraud Action UK show that contactless fraud has risen to over £6m in the last year in the UK, which is now higher than cheque fraud.
With almost all of us carrying RFID chips in everyday items like credit cards, ID cards and passports, what’s the best way to prevent fraud? RFID blocking materials like these above provide protection by acting like a Faraday cage, blocking signals from escaping the RFID chips, and therefore preventing fraud via automated RFID scanners, which can now be operated via mobile phone.
RFID blocking products come in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit the chip being protected. Most RFID enabled chips are credit card sized, so we have individual cardholders, or for full protection, use our blocking card cases which can carry multiple credit or ID cards.
For quick access, attach a protective slip to the back of your phone, which combines practicality with security. When carrying your passport around, ensure that no signals escape by using our RFID protecting passport cover.
Fraud is only set to increase across the world, with banks potentially increasing the limit available for spending via contactless. Printed or branded RFID blockers used for marketing purposes portray your company as security conscious and forward thinking.
RFID blocking products can be printed in many different methods, however here at Printkick we mostly screen print or pad print these items. This gives tight registration, accurate colours and a quick turnaround time. However, customers with full colour logos may need to have their artwork redrawn to fit this, which we’re happy to do for free.
Printkick have decades of experience in the printed products sector, and RFID protective items are only a small part of our range. You could pair these innovative security products with others from our range of technology products, combining them to form a unique proposition for your employees or customers.
