WHAT IS RFID?


RFID stands for Radio-Frequency IDentification. The acronym refers to small electronic devices that consist of a small chip and an antenna. The chip typically is capable of carrying 2,000 bytes of data or less.The RFID device serves the same purpose as a bar code or a magnetic strip on the back of a credit card or ATM card; it provides a unique identifier for that object. And, just as a bar code or magnetic strip must be scanned to get the information, the RFID device must be scanned to retrieve the identifying information.


The data is stored on tiny little chips called RFID chips. These chips can be put into credit cards and other IDs like Biometric Passports, ID Cards. The idea of our RFID products is that they contain a protective layer that should block the RFID signals thus preventing identity thieves from scanning or 'skimming' your cards etc and stealing the information.
