SKY NEWS Money interviews Tyler Harris
On Friday 21st August 2015, one of Armourcard’s Directors Tyler Harris was asked to be a guest speaker on SKY NEWS MONEY the Money Exchange show with Andrew Barnett.
The interview titled:
Electronic Pick Pocketing. What is it and how to avoid it?
In the interview Tyler was asked by Andrew from the Money Exchange one of SKY NEWS money segments some key questions surrounding the topic ranging from:
What is electronic pick pocketing and how prevalent is it?
right through to…
So when they scan my details what do they get and how can they use it?
In the live on-air filming of SKY NEWS Money Exchange Show with Andrew Barnett, Harris went on to say:
Its not just about credit cards and fiscal loss off a card, the bigger picture is profiling you for identity theft.
He also went on to say:
Identity theft is a growing global concern
And as more of this type of technology comes into our lives we must start to protect ourselves from exploitation of the very same technology found in these tap & go credits and ePassports.
Watch the SKY NEWS Money Exchange segment above, the interview starts at 2:47 in the video.
Short video demonstration of Armourcards jamming technology in action.
Not all protective devices are equal, in-fact passive devices like RFID blocking wallets & RFID shielding credit card sleeves have a varying degree of effectiveness and often can still be penetrated if a criminal boosts the power on an RFID reader (purchased for less $100) and pumps up the antenna strength. (easy to do just search on the internet for free instructions)
We tackled the skimming issue differently, Armourcard is the 1st product to offer active protection, what that means is Armourcard will instantly power up when someone tries to skim your credit cards or ePassports and it will emit a jamming signal that electronically jams the frequency these credit cards & passport communicate over (13.56MHz). It does not matter if a criminal boosts the power of a reader or amps up the antenna strength as it can not penetrate the jamming of this frequency?(13.56MHz) that Armourcard puts out.
So if you’re wanting superior protection from wireless skimming then Armourcard is for you. Watch how easy it is to protect your credit cards in this video demonstration.
