With identity-theft and credit card fraud concerns rising, California-based Kena Kai wants to educate students about a new high-tech way to protect their credit cards.

Kena Kai designs the patent-pending, and Government certified, DataSafe Wallet line that utilize multiple layers of radio-frequency (RF) shielding material to protect the millions of new wireless "contactless credit cards" that will be issued to students this year. A thief does not even have to physically touch your student's wallet to steal their information anymore!

Credit cards have become an integral part in campus life. With the recent introduction of credit cards and passports that contain an electronic wireless chip, sometimes referred to as an RFID (radio-frequency identification) chip, these critical and very personal tools in our daily life are now at risk. With most advances in technology come tradeoffs and this is no exception.

While these new cards and passports offer greater convenience they are also open to "skimming" the wireless access and/or copying of personal information stored on these cards from a distance.

Researchers from the University of Massachusetts have shown that they could access a credit card user's name, the number and the expiration from more than twenty feet away through their clothing and ordinary wallets!

"Even though there are inherent security measures built into these new 'contactless credit cards' and ePassports, we recognize the public's concern regarding identity-theft and 'tracking,' and have designed these stylish wallets with multiple layers of RF shielding material that completely blocks unwanted access to the user's personal information," offered Geb Masterson, president of Kena Kai.
