Silence is golden, or so the saying goes.
But in a world where corporate espionage and phone hacking are commonplace a space that’s shielded from electronic eavesdropping is arguably worth more than its weight in gold.
Quiet Rooms are just that – secure areas within your office or home where signals from mobile phone or electronic surveillance devices cannot penetrate. Built into the actual fabric of the building (normally at the construction stage), we offer low-impact solutions for those that really value their privacy. Outstanding performance with minimum intrusion our Quiet Rooms are a synthesis of functionality, cutting-edge technology and design excellence.

In early November 2011, BBC News services reported that malware attacks on UK Android Apps, and smartphone fraud in general, had risen by a staggering 800% since this time last year!!!!
Meanwhile, RFID Protect is developing a solution for smartphone users wary of this technology. It comes in the shape of a simple flexibly designed App that will be launched late 2012, and made available to download from www.rfidprotect.co.uk
So before too long, iPhone and Android users will have the option to disable their NFC (Near Field Communication) feature and as our motto goes “MAKE YOURSELF INVISIBLE’ to would be phone hackers, e-pickpockets and e-payment skimmers.
We’re exploring the scope for a timer function too – so users get to determine the amount of time their smartphone can be accessed by third parties.
Over the past 12 months, RFID Protect has been making new friends across Twitter, and in the process of doing so hopefully spreading useful information about how ‘contactless’ technology is being introduced and already changing lives.
We are thrilled to announce that we now have over 100 followers.

British-based interactive magazine E-Life devoted a full-page spread, in its June 2011 edition, to the issue of ‘anti-skim’ technology in respect of contactless devices, such as e-passports or ‘smart’ credit cards.
“Make yourself invisible. What they can’t see – they can’t steal.” was the message from RFID Protect, and that prevention is always better than cure.
