Why buy an RFID blocking wallet?

You might have heard of RFID but don’t quite know what it is or what the potential dangers might be. So let’s briefly go over how it works and what the potential risks are.

What is RFID?

RFID is short for radio-frequency identification. It uses electromagnetic fields to allow a reader to collect information stored on a tag and is used in a variety applications, one of which is contact-less payments. In this case the payment terminal (the reader) reads information from your credit card (the tag) to complete a transaction.

Why would you need an RFID blocking wallet?

The problem with RFID is that it isn’t very secure. This means that anyone with the proper reader can interact with your credit card or steal data without actually having to hold it. Provided they can get close enough to you, they could theoretically steal your money while your wallet is still in your pocket.

That’s where RFID wallets come in. By inserting certain materials into your wallet, a kind of protective cage can be formed around your cards to prevent theft.

Do I really need an RFID wallet?

Honestly, probably not. Theft through RFID isn’t very common and a lot of cards are not susceptible to these kinds of readers. It’s far more likely that your credit card data will get stolen by someone physically getting hold of your card or through online means.

So if you’re not getting the wallet you really want just because it doesn’t have RFID protection, don’t worry about it too much and just get one that you like. For that I highly recommend checking out our full source lists of American made wallets.

If you still want a little extra safety, what you can also do is buy an RFID blocking card sleeve. This a cheaper option and allows you to choose any wallet you want while still being protected. Their downside is that they’re more of a hassle to use.

But, in case you want the ease and security of an RFID blocking wallet, we’ve compiled a list of the best American made wallets available!
