Warning! Protect your credit card

NFCProxy: why you want to protect your credit card

Although this app and the technology involved is amazing and useful for credit card transactions, you may want to take a look at this article and the video to educate yourself on how this technology can be misused to your detriment. The app, and many more out there, can be used to skim your credit card information and then use it at at a credit card reader found at almost all cash register checkouts at almost any store. Imagine you are sitting at work, a restaurant, or anywhere and you have your credit card in your pocket or sitting on a counter for some reason. Then someone innocently sets their phone down next to it. Tap!! ...your credit card information has been skimmed and twenty minutes later someone just purchased that VIZIO 55-Inch Theater 3D Edge Lit Razor LED LCD HDTV with Internet Apps at your expense. It is that easy. What if you are at a checkout and you hand your credit card to the cashier or salesperson and they simply set it down next to their phone while processing your purchase? Tap ...they have your information. Keep your card in view and away from smartphones and think about purchasing an inexpensive credit card protector like the Identity Stronghold Secure Sleeve / Case for Id & Credit Card - Pack of 10 from Amazon.
