Critics warn that RFID-tagged IDs will enable identity thieves and other criminals to commit “contactless” crimes against victims who won't immediately know they've been violated. New CardProtectors from Brady People ID of Burlington, Massachusetts, protect personal information on contactless cards, credit cards, debit cards, or any 13.56 MHz RFID technology card. A layer of shielded material protects a card against unauthorized or unknown access to valuable information, and the holders are FIPS-201 compliant. Rigid Shielded Vertical and Vinyl Shielded Vertical versions hold up to two cards and come with a slot for easy attachment to a lanyard or badge holder. The Shielded Paper version protects debit and credit cards and fits into any pocket or wallet. All protectors are made in the United States. 1272
