As the world has become increasingly digital, the banking industry has attempted to catch up by providing secure and convenient payment methods. There are a variety of digital payment methods available, all of which are stored on your card. RFID, for example, is a radio frequency-based technology. Someone with an RFID skimming device may pick up on these signals and capture the information in them — your payment information or personal data – posing a threat. The deployment of an RFID system necessitates meticulous planning and a thorough understanding of the technology’s capabilities and limitations.
To determine whether an RFID solution will work for you, most service providers, including Peak Technologies, require you to engage in a consultation and site survey. If you find a service provider prepared to offer you a system without performing these steps, you should probably pass. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) transmits data from RFID tags to an RFID reader using radio waves.

- CREDIT CARDS & DEBIT CARD
Contact less payment is a feature of credit cards that relies on RFID technology to function. It’s a simple way for people to pay for products. The funds are deducted from your account by scanning your card with an RFID reader in a retail outlet or even on public transit.
Passports are documents that are used to travel from one country to another. RFID chips are embedded in passports to make scanning easier when travelling. It’s meant to make the customs process go faster. On the other hand, your passport information could be personal data that is purchased and sold on the open market. This is a technique used in identity theft.
- ID CARDS
Personal information is stored on most college ID cards and most other cards. For example, your social security number, date of birth, and meal balance on a college ID card could be used to pay for meals in the cafeteria. Depending on the type of ID, other types of identification may contain similar information. RFID could even be used in contact less metro cards. If you’re not vigilant, the skimmer may be able to access your subway card balance. These cards may employ RFID technology, necessitating their protection. To secure your personal information, make sure you carry handbags that have RFID protection.

While RFID is a powerful tool, its deployment and use necessitate careful consideration. We regularly interact with customers who believe they require this type of solution but cannot afford it due to its complexity and cost.
