Secrid Wallet Protects From Contactless Theft

Remember the video showing the man using a handheld payWave/PayPass machine to make an unauthorized transaction by hovering the device near the wallet of an innocent bystander (see it below) – well the Secrid Wallet is here to make sure that never happens to you.

The Secrid is a customizable wallet that utilizes technology to protect your personal data, while doubling up as fashion-forward accessory.

The built-in card-protector blocks all forms of involuntary wireless connections from your cards with radio-frequency identification (RFID). Transactions can only occur when the cards are slid out by 30mm.

On top of its sophisticated protection gizmo, the Secrid is scratch-resistant and water-repellent. Just for lovers of customization, build-on options of the wallet include the moneyband, cardslide as well as a leather outlook.

And if you need another reason to part with your money for the Secrid, you’d be pleased to know that a percentage of every purchase supports the revival of the leather industry in the Netherlands, which has created more than 300 jobs to date.
