Contactless credit cards are pretty convenient to use, but they’re also a lot less secure than normal credit cards. The RFID chips embedded inside can be read from several feet away even when inside your wallet, allowing criminals to get your credit card number, expiration date and CCV number – everything they need to rack up fraudulent charges on your card.
Thankfully, there’s an easy answer to this growing problem: Special RFID blocking materials, which can disrupt any reading attempts that occur while your credit card is in your wallet or purse. These very same materials are used in the first RFID-blocking iPhone 5S case, the Tuff-Luv Vintage Leather Wallet Case with RFID.
This wallet case includes three credit card slots, along with a larger back pocket for cash. Each slot is protected with a layer of RFID-resistant material, blocking skimming attempts and keeping your card details safe.
The rest of this iPhone 5S case is impressive too, with a gorgeous vintage leather construction that looks and feels great. A detachable slimline shell sits inside, allowing you to keep your phone protected from scratches and drops without taking the cards and cash with you. A special Tuff-Luv screen protector is also included, to ensure that your iPhone is kept safe from damage to the screen.
If you’ve got a contactless credit card, then keep your card details safe with an RFID blocking wallet, like the Tuff-Luv Vintage Leather Wallet Case.
