CARMick Products Announces New Product Launch Event: Combo Packs
Set of Wallet Card Holders and Passport Jackets Offer Extensive Protection
The company will launch its second product offering later this month. The addition will extend its ID Preserver line of items in the identity protection niche. The product line addresses the pervasive need for the protection of personal information.
Specifically, CARMick Products is releasing a product focused on preserving the privacy of the electronic data carried about in pockets, purses and wallets by nearly everyone and especially travelers. Director of ID Preserver Brand Marketing, Rick Dondo said "We are looking forward to being able to provide the same level of protection to the Biometric Passport as we have done for contactless Smart cards since earlier this year."
THE NEED: RFID, NFC, PASSPORTS AND SMART CARDS
Banks, governments and many other institutions issue contactless or "Smart" cards to their clients and constituents that include microchips intended to exchange data via radio frequency identification ("RFID") technology. US Passport cards contain this technology.
US Passports in booklet form contain a version of this technology. Their size requires a specialized jacket in order to provide the same protection. The new product includes the Passport ID Preserver which holds these documents. US Passport cards can be protected in a Card ID Preserver designed for wallet cards.
With inexpensive readers readily available from a variety of sources or one of the latest generation of Smartphones, ill-intentioned people (e.g., "hackers" and thieves) can access the confidential information contained on those cards without ever holding them physically. This is commonly referred to as "electronic pickpocketing" or "skimming". Unless properly shielded, card and booklet-based data will be transmitted when any active reader is in range! In fact, they can be read while still in a person's pocket, purse or wallet.
Such devices often include "Near Field Communications" or "NFC" technology. It shares many of its characteristics with RFID, including the radio frequency (13.56 MHz). Those signals activate the microchips in the cards and can be used to read information from them.
THE ID PRESERVERô COMBO PACK
The ID Preserver Combo Pack contains two passport jackets and 10 credit or wallet card holders. Each sleeve or jacket is the secret to keeping your data where it belongs: on your cards and in your passport!
The durable sleeves are compliant with the US Government's FIPS-201 standard as an electromagnetically opaque sleeve. They are unique in the industry and are pending patent approval.
Each wallet card sleeve will hold one standard wallet-sized card (3 3/8" x 2 1/8"). A passport jacket will hold one US booklet-style passport (3 3/8" x 4 7/8").
Each is a durable sleeve composed of various materials laminated together to form an electronic shield or "Faraday Cage" which blocks all RFID signals, preventing activation of the microchip and ensuring the data never goes anywhere the owner does not intend for it to go. The outer layer is paper, allowing the card owner to easily identify its contents by simply writing on it.
AVAILABILITY AND THE PRODUCT LAUNCH
The ID Preserver Combo Pack is available for purchase on the Amazon electronic marketplace today. This product has an MSRP of $39.99. As a product launch promotion, CARMick Products is offering an introductory price of $25.99.
