myID protecting your identity when you travel
The new passports issued in the UK since March 2006 are biometric, which means they contain an RFID chip which holds personal information about you. These RFID chips are designed to be activated remotely and to transmit information when requested. This allows the automated passport booths in airports to legitimately and conveniently read your passport and check you are who you say you are. However, research has shown that this information can be accessed from a few feet away, which heightens the risk of illegitimate readers beng used to access your personal information. myID RFID passport wallets use RFID blocking technology to prevent illegal acces and scanning of your personal information which would otherwise leave you vulnerable and open to identity theft.
myID offers you a range of stylish leather passport holders that offer you protection against identity theft, without compromising on style, meaning all you have to worry about is what to buy in duty free.
You could even be at risk if you use your passport as ID in a bar without myID. Mouse over the image below to see how the RFID reader lights change when protected by myID which forms a barrier to help keep your identity in your hands rather than in the hands of an identity thief.
