You've probably seen Identity Stronghold demonstrate on your local or national news channel how easy it is for thieves to steal your credit card information with a wireless scanner without even touching you. Over 200+ million cards have now issued with RFID. Maybe you have wondered if your credit cards and debit cards are susceptible? Find out with this app!
This app will not help thieves steal. This app only shows part of your account number as a precaution. But it is enough for you to know if your card can be scanned by thieves. We have crippled this app to not reveal the entire account number for consumer protection.
If your credit card does not contain RFID the app will just remain on "place phone on card" screen. This does not mean the app is not working just that your card does not have a radio chip in it yet. Please don't rate poorly for this reason as the app can only tell you when it finds and RFID chip, not when it doesn't. Thank you.
Not all credit cards and debit cards contain radio chips yet. Look for a WiFi type radio symbol on your card. If you have that symbol, your card DOES contain an RFID chip. Also each major card issuer has a different trademark so they may not always use the WiFi symbol.
The phones currently with NFC have a very short read range. Much shorter than the equipment thieves would use. So to test your card, set it on a non-metal table and with our app running set your phone on top of the card. It will take about 1-3 seconds to scan and show the end of your card number. If it does not detect your card, try moving removing the phone and setting it down on a different spot on the card. If it continues to not detect your card after two or three tries, your card likely doesn't have the new RFID chip embedded yet. But in the next 2 to 3 years most cards worldwide will be replaced with these new RFID versions, so you will have to watch your new cards when they come in.
This app will also detect some other RFID chips such as transit payment cards but not all RFID chips, as some operate on a different frequency. Particularly this app won't analyze state drivers' licenses, passport cards etc. It was primarily designed for credit and debit cards.
We have tested the app with US and Canadian credit and debit cards and a United Kingdom credit card. If you have a card from another country that you know has an RFID chip in it and it doesn't scan please email us and let us know what kind of card and which bank so we can see if they have a different format.
There may be a few credit cards that transmit a different card number than the one on the front of your card. Identity Stronghold has tested a few of these type cards and we were still able to complete purchases with that different number.
What does this all mean? Simply this. If you have one of these cards in your wallet or purse where someone in a crowd can get near your card, there is a chance that person could scan your credit and debit card info and steal from you.
It is up to you to protect yourself since the problem will only get worse as more of these new cards are issued. Identity Stronghold makes lots of different RFID blocking products to protect you such as shielded wallets, sleeves, and badge holders. The button on the screen that says "Protect Your Card" links you directly to the Identity Stronghold website where you can watch various news reports , read up on the technology and see the different products we offer for your protection.
Please show your friends as uninformed means unprotected....and the risk is as high as your credit limit...
This app was tested and works on Samsung Nexus S phones.
Many more NFC phones will be released shortly.

The application reads and writes station numbers into RFID tags.
A phone with near field communication (NFC) is required.
The application provides detailed about the NFC beam that has been transmitted from the device.
The application provides data of various tags such as ISO,Felica,RFID,NDEF and several other NFC beam details.
Just enable the application and use your phone to read the NFC data.
The application provides the details such as the name of the application that has been the NFC beam has been transmitting and what is the package name of the application that is used by the other phone.
This is a simple and powerful NFC reader application that can be found in the google play.
This app allows you to explore the contents of the RFID/NFC enabled smart card transponders. This is very useful for anyone programming NFC applications, or for anyone who wants to see what transponders they are carrying around in their purse or wallet.
To scan a smart-card or NFC tag, start the app, then hold the card/tag within a few millimeters of the back of your device (you may have to swipe around a bit to find where the NCF reader is in your device).
The app displays:
* The transponder ID
* RF technologies used
* Type of transponder
* ATQA code
* Target tech classes
* Number of times this transponder has been scanned
NOTE: Not all android devices support NFC. If your phone or tablet does not support NFC, a message appears on the screen to notify you, and the app closes.
Approach a tag and the application will display the available information, such as:
- The manufacturer of the tag (eg NXP, Nokia, IBM)

You can use this app to associate multiple functions (e.g. Wlan OFF, Bluetooth ON, Mobile Data TOGGLE, start navigation,run Tasker task, start any installed app, use media buttons, call a phone number, add a timestamp, calendar entry, add Text-to-Speech and much more!) to a NFC (near field communication) tag via an app internal database. You can even add tag cycles and let your tag run different activities per scan. So ReTag is the perfect NFC automation tool for you ;-).
(Works with ANY android supported tag = re-writable AND write protected!)
With NFC ReTag you don´t have to write anything on the tag (-> uses the tag ID, great for small tagsizes and write-protected tags!) and NO data is send to the internet. Additional write options (for better dispatching, device independent tags etc.) are also available. Import of activity tags and beaming is also supportet.
*!* NFC enabled device required / NO root required *!*

Supports any standard android NFC tags (NFC Forum Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, Type 4, MIFARE Classic, Ultralight(C), DESFire etc.).
Issues with TASKER: Install Tasker BEFORE NFC ReTAG, enable Misc / Allow External Access in Tasker UI, enable Tasker (on/off button), try the Tasker fallback option within NFC ReTag settings!
Some security related NFC Tags (e.g. in passports) change their ID on every read attempt. This app will not work with such tags.
After clicking on button TEST inViu NFC-tracker will read all NFC tags with your NFC enabled Android device and displays its world wide unique tag number as well as all of the information stored on them. Can be used to track mobile workers without using GPS in connection with inViu pro*.
★★★ Basic features ★★★
▶ Reads and displays the unique tag id
▶ reads and displays various meta info on the tag
▶ reads RF technology and tag type
▶ reads and displays raw data: hex, ASCII, UTF-8
★★★ Features in conjunction with inViu pro* ★★★
▶ employees are assigned a personal PIN - an NFC enabled Android device can be used by different employees
▶ fast and easy readout of the data stored on the NFC tag - the tag can store text, URLs, contact information, instructions, etc.
▶ an NFC tags can be permanently assigned to a defined geographical location (geofence) in inViu pro - this is possible even without GPS reception (e.g. in buildings with multiple floors)
▶ optional: displays and transmits actual address (GPS) while reading the tag
▶ saves the data collected in the app when there is no mobile phone connection until an internet connection is available - will not lose the data
★★★ Some words regarding the login screen: ★★★
we have been asked several times why the app provides a login screen.
This login screen is not required for those who just want to read NFC TAGs.
The login screen is intended to be used by users who want to transfer data to the ENAiKOON telematics platform eg. when using the NFC-tracker for security guards, for home nurses or for time recordings on construction sites. For those users it is essential to protect the privacy of their personnell.
Please get in contact with us if you require such a password.
