What is RFID-blocking technology?

Radio-frequency identification (RFID)-blocking wallets can help to keep your accounts safe from getting hacked, and block risky RFID signals from stealing your credit card details, driver's license information and any other card in your wallet that has an embedded RFID chip.

Although experts suggest that RFID theft is rare, it never hurts to be cautious.

The details

This passport cover and wallet is the perfect place to store all your important documents and cards while travelling, as it features three credit card slots, an ID window, a boarding pass holder, a passport slot, and a small slot for an extra sim card.

The wallet is made using durable vegan leather, and is laced with RFID-blocking material to keep your cards secure. Choose from six colours of this top-rated wallet, all of which are just $19 right now instead of their usual $35.

What people are saying

With a solid 4.3-star rating, the Access Denied passport holder is a top choice among Amazon shoppers who are looking to protect their cards and documents. It's been dubbed the "perfect passport holder" by shoppers, while also delivering "great value."

"Looks great, very high quality," one reviewer wrote. "Great price. Great purchase!"

Despite being just $19 right now, reviewers have noted that this passport cover is "as good as any designer comparable" while being just a fraction of the price.

Other reviewers have found this wallet to be "lightweight and functional," as it even has room to comfortably fit a 10-year Canadian passport.

Some reviewers have found that they weren't a fan of the "chemical odour" from this wallet's faux leather construction. Airing it out before use can help eliminate the smell, or you can opt for the brand's larger, genuine leather wallet instead.

The verdict

Ringing in on sale at just $19, the Access Denied Passport Holder Cover Wallet RFID is an affordable and effective way to keep your cards safe while travelling. Shoppers have been impressed by its practical design and value for money, although it is important to note that this version is made using vegan leather.
