RFID Theft Protection Rfid Theft Protection

What is RFID? Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the use of a wireless, non-contact system that uses radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data from a tag attached to an object, (plastic card) for the purposes of identification and tracking.

You can find out calling your credit card company, reading your card agreement or checking your card for the presence of an RFID chip or RFID logo, which looks like a series of expanding ripples or waves.
