Orders being dispatched

RFIDsecur contactless cards piled high
RFID Cloaked first production run of RFIDsecur contactless protection cards. Ready for delivery for our Kickstarter backers.

Thanks to our amazing backers on Kickstarter, we have finally produced and are now dispatching the first ever production RFIDsecur™ contactless protection cards. They are even better than we had expected after completing some manufacturing changes at the last minute. This has meant RFID Cloaked have managed to produce even thinner cards than originally achieved in our prototypes. At around 270 microns these are the thinnest and best contactless protection cards currently available.
Another change to the manufacturing process has produced smoother edges, far superior than our prototypes meaning less likely to catch on other cards when being slide next in a wallet or purse.

Feedback

After successfully being funded on Kickstarter we have started to deliver our first RFIDsecur™ card orders. Kickstarter backers are beginning to receive the first batch of these contactless protection cards.

We’ve been receiving some great feedback from many of our #RFIDsecur card #Kickstarter backers we thought we’d share some with you.

If any of our Kickstarter backers are reading this, please feel free to share your thoughts and posts with us and we’ll do our best to update our page with your comments.

Kickstarter funding

We can now say, funded with Kickstarter.

Funding

Our aim was to raise £4,775 pounds through our first Kickstarter campaign, so we could go through the Hewlett Packard Indigo Media Certification Program. Allowing us enough money to cover the cost of the trial, manufacture enough RFIDsecur™ material to produce the rewards for our backers and for the testing process used in the HP trial. We also need to allow for taxes and fees associated with raising the funds.

We are now over the shock and awe of finishing our first Kickstarter project. Lots of late nights and long days, we put our hearts into this project and we are so glad to say we’ve come out of the other side.

What can I say, we smashed it and raised £6,831 and we are overwhelmed by the support and the pledges made, we are still getting people asking for RFIDsecur™ blocking cards after the deadline. Backers from all over the world,  have pledged and put their trust in us.

What next

The Kickstarter project may have finished, but the work is far from over. We have to contact all our backers confirm designs and numbers. Finalising the details, organising the manufacturing of the RFIDsecur™ material and printing of the RFID, NFC blocking cards designs. And then, there are all our new followers on our social media channels, without who, I’m sure this campaign wouldn’t have been successful.

Kickstarter

Having completed our first campaign on Kickstarter, lessons have been learned and we now feel we are better prepared for future projects.  Already talking about a new project, with new rewards as well as some old ones, watch this space.

KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN

Please support us, your pledges will make a difference
to how we can protect your data.

Over 96% funded towards our goal, we would like to thank everyone who has pledged. We are well on our way, but without your support it wouldn’t happen. Don’t forget to let others know about us. We’re hoping to overfund the project, this would help us greatly.

Thank you.

One oAuth 2.0 hack, 1 Billion Android App Accounts potentially exposed

How safe is data on your smart phone app, not as safe as you think. Using smart phones as a payment system may have its risks.

Security researchers demonstrated that a Wrong OAuth 2.0 implementation allows a remote simple hack that exposes more than 1 Billion Android App Accounts.

Hacks
OAuth2.0 hack – information that can be accessed by criminals in hacked applications

A remote simple hack devised by a group of security researchers threatens an amazing number of Android and iOS apps. An attacker can use the technique to sign into any victim’s mobile app account without any knowledge of the legitimate user.

The research team from the Chinese University of Hong Kong is composed of Ronghai Yang, Wing Cheong Lau, and Tianyu Liu. The experts discovered that the vast majority of popular mobile apps that use the single sign-on (SSO) service doesn’t properly implement the OAuth 2.0 protocol.

The OAuth 2.0 authentication protocol is widely used on social networking sites, every day billion of users access their profiles on Facebook and Google+ using it.

Using the OAuth 2.0, users can sign in for third-party services by verifying existing identity through their accounts on popular web services such as Google, Facebook, or Sina.

Once authenticated, the users haven’t to provide their credentials to access other services implementing the OAuth 2.0 protocol.

Kickstarter project live – RFIDsecur™ RFID and NFC blocking cards

Kickstarter

It’s actually happened and our Kickstarter fund-raising is active please visit and pledge, if you can’t pledge please share and spread the world as it all helps.

On the first day we’ve raised nearly 10% of our Kickstarter fund-raising target and we’ve still got 26 days to go, with all the support, hopefully we will reach our target.

 

RFIDsecur™

This fund-raising is as much about raising the profile of our new material RFIDsecur™ as the fund-raising to get Hewlett-Packard approval for digital printing. We are aiming to reach out to manufacturers and businesses that need new materials work with them to help produce some of the best RFID and NFC blocking products on the market. This card shows how versatile RFIDsecur™ is, printable, ultra thin, flexible whilst still being able to block multi frequencies of 13.56Mhz and 125Khz.

Press Release – RFIDsecur™

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Eliminate the threat of data theft and fraud against contactless IDs and credit cards with easy to customize fabric

2 Nov 2016 – Exeter UK

RFID Blocking Lab testing
RFIDsecur™ final material being tested for quality and RF blocking, the final material passed testing for RFID NFC blocking both 13.56Mhz and 125Khz signals.

Anyone who carries a touchless or contactless ID is at risk from fraudsters using mobile phones and skimming devices to clone/read cards and assist with identity theft. As demonstrated in the attached video http://rfidcloaked.com/rfid-secur-film/, in less than 10 seconds, fraudsters using remote scanning devices can steal your credit card number, expiration date, pin entry data and transaction history.

“The problem is pervasive and there is a real opportunity for manufacturers of clothing, wallets, and bags as well as payment, loyalty and building-access cards to weave security into their product design,” said Julian Ghail, founder of RFIDCLOAKED. “As a proof of concept for Kickstarter, we’ve developed a revolutionary wallet insert that shields all RFID card types in the near field, enabling passive protection of your cards, without interfering with retail security systems or card conflicts at the point of sale (POS) terminal which many jamming cards are doing. The material can be sewn, folded and printed

For Kickstarter, RFIDCLOAKED has created an incredibly thin, ultra light super flexible contactless card theft protector that is only 0.3mm thick (the average credit card is 0.8mm). RFIDCLOAKED’s Kickstarter project is the only card on the market to offer full protection of RFID NFC cards with none of the bulk. The size of a business card, the wallet-insert slips neatly into any type of wallet or billfold and provides instant protection from fraudsters.

“We’ll be introducing new product design concepts over the coming months to demonstrate just how flexible this new fabric technology can be,” said Ghail.
