RFID, or radio frequency identification, makes many things quicker and more convenient. The RFID tag in your credit card allows you to make contactless payments, without having to sign or type in your PIN. The RFID tag in your passport makes the line at the airport go much faster, so you aren’t waiting around for your vacation to begin.
But like anything you keep valuables in, you need to protect your RFID-embedded belongings. It’s no different from keeping your cash hidden from pickpockets. Of course it’s safe to carry cash, even though there’s a tiny chance of being pickpocketed. And it’s the same with RFID. Although it’s essentially safe, a little bit of protection in the form of an RFID wallet could be worth your while.
