SkimSafe® Security Card
A single SkimSafe security card in your wallet or purse protects all of your bank cards from contactless skimming. Today, thieves can wirelessly read your contactless card details from up to a 1m distance, enabling them to use your cards details to shop online. The SkimSafe card stops any contactless scammers by creating a protective forcefield that surrounds your bank cards, protecting your details.
What is contactless skimming?
Contactless skimming is a new method to steal your contactless bank card details wirelessly. This can be done from a distance of up to 1m by using only a scanner or a mobile phone via a skimming app downloaded onto it. With your card details in hand, a criminal can then shop online without your knowledge. Contactless skimming is nearly impossible to detect until it’s too late, when all of your money has gone.
