What is RFID?
RFID is a new technology that is used commonly on things such as your credit cards or new Australian passports that enables you to swipe the object near an RFID reader and within moments the transaction has been completed.
Why can RFID be dangerous?
Personal identity thieves can carry a small RFID reader in their pockets and by simply standing next to you with your credit card in your pocket, their reader can download all of your credit card information. The same applies to all of the your personal information on your passport. Within an instant your personal details can be stolen.
