The Cardprotector launched in 2009, but our Secrid journey started over a decade earlier. In the 1990s, we were running our design agency Spirid, when we noticed a shift in the content of our pockets as the first electronic payment systems were introduced in the Netherlands. In 1997, as cash made way for cards, we created our first minimal wallet: the Secrid Bodycard.
RFID BLOCKING WALLET
Modern cards, such as creditcards and access cards, contain a chip and antenna for wireless communication. These RFID (Radio-Frequency IDentification) or NFC (Near Field Communication) cards increase convenience, but consequently the risks too. Our Cardprotector, the aluminium heart of all our wallets, protects your cards from these kinds of unwanted wireless communication.
