How reassuring. So they won’t be able to take my data from it, but they’ll be able to clone it and frame me or just use the unique ID to track me remotely. But they’re going to be passing out sleeves that prevent it from being read remotely without your authorization. So if you don’t find it bulky and actually use it, you’ll be partially protected until it’s time to pull it out to be read or if someone gets a few seconds alone with your wallet to pull it out and clone it.Tags: New York, RFID
