Technology Designed to Safeguard Your Identity When You Travel

Filed under: Events — Tags: , — admin @ 7:04 am

An identity is stolen every two seconds and criminals, unfortunately, look to obvious travelers and foreigners as targets. There have been some amazing advancements in travel technology gadgets designed to minimize fraud and theft.

RFID Blocking Wallets

Most Credit Card have RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) that allows cards to be charged without swiping them. This technology, sadly, also allows an identity thieve to walk by you with a scanner and collect your credit card information. A great “gadget,” if you will, are RFID blocking wallets. By blocking non-deliberate communication over RFID channels, you can prevent your private information from unintentionally being broadcast to thieves. There are several high-quality, reasonably priced RFID-blocking wallets. Check out the RFIDtec 150 RFID Blocking Passport Wallet by PacsafeTavelon also makes RFID blocking wallets.

Trak-N-Return Luggage Tags

Among the risks and frustrations that come with traveling, few are as worrisome as losing your luggage. The Trak-N-Return luggage tag replaces the traditional luggage tag and protects your personal information from prying eyes and criminals by replacing that information with a contact number and PIN.

Smartphone and Laptop Privacy Screens

One of the easiest, low tech ways for identity thieves to steal your information is to simply look over the victim’s shoulder or use some kind of recording device to capture passwords, PINs, and other info.

Privacy screens fit over your smartphone or computer screen so that the information on the screen is only visible to you and not from other angles. Privacy screens come in all shapes and sizes and are easily found and installed. Check out the 3M™ Privacy Screen Protectors.

SMARTPHONE SECURITY APPS

Remotely Deletion

Remotely delete everything on your Smartphone should you lose it. ‘Find my iPhone’ for Appleand ‘LookOut’ for Android are two such apps. A little upfront work goes a long way for peace of mind if your phone gets misplaced, stolen or lost.

Secure Password and Credit Card Storage Apps

Good Web security hygiene creates two problems. First, you have to remember all those different passwords. Second, if you lose your smartphone, your many passwords may be at risk.

Check out this article from the New York Times, “Apps to Protect Your Array of Passwords,” and learn about apps that can help you secure your passwords.

Avoid Juice Jacking

Did you know that plugging your mobile device into a random power charging station using a USB cord could jeopardize the data on that device? That means if you rent a car and plug the device in or plug directly into a USB hub at the airport, you could be compromising your identity and personal information on that device. Here are two devices reviewed by KrebonSecurity – the “USB Condom” and a device called the “Juice-Jack Defender.”

The USB Condom protects personal and private data stored on your mobile device by blocking data connections in the USB cable, only allowing power to your device. Check it out at www.usbcondoms.com.

The Juice-Jack Defender by ChargeDefense is a patent-pending product that will help millions remove 100% mobile charging vulnerabilities to identity theft and malware.

Security experts have identified USB mobile charging in public locations as the #1 opportunity for identify theft and malware. Aptly named “juice jacking”, charging stations provide hackers with a target-rich environment for malicious activity. Mobile charging stations are rapidly being added at airports and public locations like restaurants and campuses. Protect yourself home and away with the ChargeDefense Juice-Jack Defender. It instantly removes all data-sharing capabilities between your charging device and charging ports.
