Radio-Frequency IDentification, refers to information stored in a chip on a debit or credit card, driver’s license, or passport. STEWART/STAND® Stainless Steel Wallets + Accessories create a barrier protecting the data from unauthorized access.
This RFID enabled information is not protected and can be accessed without your knowledge: full name, billing zip, cc number/identification number, exp date, personal passport data.
