NEW! - PASSPORT SIZE - THOR™ RFID Shield
It’s time to bring down the hammer on identity thieves!™ Precision machined in the USA from 99.9% pure copper, the THOR™ RFID Passport Antenna Shield is designed to help provide RFID protection and reduce risk of RFID skimming. Many new American and Canadian passports are being issued with microchips - the symbol at the bottom of the passport indicates it has a microchip.
The THOR™ Passport RFID Shield is designed for use in American and Canadian passports
or any other passports with dimensions of 3 7/16 inches wide x 4 7/8 inches long.
The THOR™ Passport RFID Shield inside a passport. It can be placed inside the passport as shown or it can be used an an existing passport holder you currently own. The ideal positioning of the shields is directly sandwiching your passport to help form a faraday cage to block/absorb RF (radio frequency) waves. Since the THOR RFID shield is portable you can use across different holders or just placed inside your passport.
Full disclosure - this shield was designed in response to those asking for RFID protection for passports. Our intent is not to "scare" anyone into buying our solution and to be perfectly honest we are on the fence as to whether or not RFID skimming is a relatively important risk or not.
Why copper? One reason. Copper is one of the very best materials for RFID shielding - period. One of the key attributes is coppers exceptional conductivity. Thor is designed to be used against flat in your passport or in your passport holder.
HOW IT WORKS:
Your passport does not have a battery, so how can it transmit data over the air? The microchip in your passport (if you have a "chipped" passport) gets powered up when radio frequency waves from a scanner/reader reaches the antenna hidden in your passport.
When the RF waves reach the antenna, a voltage differential is created, which powers up the microchip and then allows for communication over air without contact. By helping to stop the radio waves reaching the antenna, the THOR RFID shield helps reduce the chance anyone can communicate with the microchip (there should also be encryption helping to protect your information).

One THOR RFID passport shield will provide some good protection from a straight on scan (line of sight). For maximum protection use 2 cards sandwiching your passport. If putting passport in pocket and using 1 shield, then you should put the shield on the outside (the side opposite your leg). Your leg will be reducing the signal on the other side.

TRAVELLING? TRY USING ONE OF THESE TITANIUM MONEY CLIPS:
Copper naturally gets a patina and we have done accelerated aging to darken the machined pattern and then applied a spray to increase the amount of time for the rest of the card to patina. It will still age over time and build character.
