As the world becomes more digitally connected, staying safe from hackers and identity theft is naturally becoming a growing concern. One of the most effective and affordable ways for people to protect themselves is to carry RFID blocking cards. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) blocking cards are designed to shield your credit and debit cards, passports, and other important documents from being scanned by nearby hackers. With this is mind, we will soon be seeing a lot more RFID cards being tucked into wallets, so why not maximize their purpose by adding your business contact information? A standard business card can now be transformed into a valuable security tool that people will always keep with them. Talk about clever branding that doubles as a handy, thoughtful gift. Let’s explore this concept a bit further.
How RFID blocking cards work:
RFID blocking cards work by creating a barrier between the card and the reader. When enabled, the card emits a low-frequency signal that blocks any attempts by hackers to access the card’s data. The card also prevents any other RFID enabled device from being able to detect the radio waves emitted by the card. This ensures that your card and personal information is safe and secure.
Blocking card benefits for your business:
- Beyond the excellent security features, RFID blocking cards are lightweight, making them easy to carry around. So instead of a blank RFID card, why not get a whole bunch of them designed and printed to showcase your business information and branding? People will happily keep your speciality card in their wallet, purse or bags along with their important cards and documents – without the worry of being exposed to hackers.
- Another benefit of RFID blocking cards is that they are designed to last a long time, so they don’t need to be replaced as often as traditional cards. This makes them a great investment that can save time, money, and frustration in the long run while keeping your products or services top of mind.
As we navigate towards a cash-free economy, contactless scanning will become a regular practice, making non-physical payment methods (and the associated risks) a future reality for everyone. As a business, it’s important to stay in tune with consumer trends and invest in ways that keep you connected to your audience. This is why it’s a good idea to consider getting your next round of business cards printed as RFID cards. Your staff, clients and customers will thank you and the added bonus is that you are protecting them from card reading scans and scams – making good business sense.
