Silent Pocket is the first product featured as the Bitcoin product of the week, a new series from Bitcoin Magazine highlighting some of the cool, interesting, or funny things you can buy with bitcoin. What should we cover next week? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Silent Pocket is a wireless shielding technology integrated into sleek leather goods like bags, pouches, backpacks, etc. which makes any device undetectable by instantly blocking cellular, GPS, WIFI, Bluetototh, RFID and NFC in all frequencies.
The feature prevents potential data breaches, hacking attacks or identity theft on mobile devices and other hardware such as bitcoin hard wallets and by protecting all devices, including cell phones, credit cards, passports, tablets and computers.
“Aside from preventing identity theft and fraud as well as corporate espionage, there are also social concerns with being constantly connected,” the Silent Pocket team says. “While technology has provided us a means of connection that would have never been possible otherwise, it is also causing many to feel spread too thin.”
Silent Pocket could also protect Bitcoin hardware wallets such as Trezor or Case, which must be connected to the Internet to access or to send transactions. Although it may be highly unlikely, leaving hardware wallets connected to a public Wi-Fi connection for a long time could make the wallets vulnerable. By completely disrupting all signals, Silent Pocket cuts off the connection of a Bitcoin hardware wallet to an Internet/Wi-Fi connection completely.
The interior of Silent Pocket leather wallets and bags are surrounded by interlocking magnetic RF seal and a combination of the best radio frequency EMR shielding material.
Currently, Silent Pocket offers a credit card wallet, iPhone 6 case, passport wallet, clutch wallet, briefcases and backpacks. Want one? Silent Pocket is available online and can be purchased with bitcoin.
