The Faraday bag is a specific practical design of the so-called "Faraday cage", which effectively prevents the penetration of electromagnetic fields to a device stored in it (in our case it is mainly mobile network signals, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, etc.). It consists of one or more layers of a grid made of conductive material wrapped with durable nylon, which protects the grid and ensures a long life of the bag. Faraday bags are mainly used by forensic experts, police and intelligence services to prevent remote manipulation of data stored on a mobile phone or on a similar device. They are also used by organisations or private individuals to protect data during sensitive meetings or during work trips:
- Law-enforcement, army, GOV agencies
Once you seize a mobile device you should have a chain of custody in mind. Faraday bag prevents remote wipe or other tampering with the evidence and ensures a secure transport from the field to the lab.
- Expert witnesses and forensic experts
Not always a SIM-cloner is available or can be used and then a Faraday bag is the only solution for an examination process, preventing any unauthorised access to the device. Faraday bags with a preview window allow a standard interaction with the device screen.
Prevent your business partners or visitors from using their mobile devices inappropriately while visiting your premises without seizing them and keep your meetings confidential. Protect your employees´ devices from data theft while travelling or during sensitive meetings.
Protect your pay-pass credit cards and ID cards or passports from modern criminals. In Faraday bag your pay-pass credit card cannot be remotely read and misused.
Do you have a car with a keyless entry system? Then you should definitely keep your keyless entry fob in a Faraday bag - amplifying the fob signal to open your car is a pice of cake for modern thieves.
