** How Can You Tell If Your Credit Cards Have RFID Chips? **

As you may know the HuMn Wallet protects against RFID skimming, but what is
RFID? It stands for Radio Frequency Identification. It’s important to
know what it is, but does it apply to you?

RFID chips are found in many items we use daily, not just credit cards.
They are used in cards that open electronic locks, cards that let you drive
through a toll booth without stopping, the remote that opens your car door,
workplace ID that unlocks the office door, and even passports.

Credit cards are now becoming more equipped with these chips.  Standard
credit cards store account information on the magnetic stripe used for
swiping but credit cards that use RFID technology store data inside a
“smart chip” within the plastic. The chip uses electromagnetic waves to
transmit account information to a reader. RFID chips do not require contact
to transfer information. They are used to create better convenience for the
user and the merchant.
