TOCA® Smart Pouch
The TOCA® Smart Pouch is a foldable Faraday cage that secures data privacy and protects the body from EMF / EMR radiation from your smartphone.
Designed for smartphones, bank cards and passports, it blocks GPS, Wi-Fi, RFID, NFC, 3G, 4G, 5G, Bluetooth and calls. The six-layer metal mesh inside the pouch acts as a protective faraday shield between you and your phone.
It protects your body from harmful radiation, but you can still receive calls and messages.
The inner protective layer, is made of a high-tech mesh of conductive material manufactured in Germany. The double folding velcro system and the outer layer make it water resistant.
RFID Skimming Protection
Did you know that money can be stolen from your bank cards if a contactless card reader is placed near your wallet? The TOCA® Smart Pouch also protects your cards, passport and other documents that contain a contactless chip. Ideal when travelling.
On the back there is a compartment for cash and coins it is sealed with a water-resistant zipper.
The TOCA® Smart Pouch comes with an adjustable strap. You can carry it around your neck, sideways or around your waist.
What is the difference between the Faraday pocket and airplane mode?
In airplane mode only the antennas that transmit information are switched off, not those that receive information. GPS is the perfect example, as it constantly receives location information. The Faraday pocket ensures that location tracking is stopped and no signals are received.
And if I turn my phone off?
Even if it seems to be off, some of the underlying activity may still be on. In a BBC interview, Edward Snowden talks about a technology called Dreamy Smurf, which is able to "turn your phone on and off without you knowing"!
Is smartphone radiation really harmful?
In all phone settings you can find the following radiation warning: "Wear your phone at least 5-15 mm away from your body". The minimum distance of 5 mm may seem insignificant, but it makes a big difference because the radiation grows in quadratic proportion. There are many consistent studies that prove the harmful effects of long-term exposure to smartphone radiation.
