There are so many ways that a hacker can steal your identity. One can steal it through your online transactions. Sometimes, I even think if it is worth doing everything online but then again online is also convenient.
Recently, I read that people can steal your important information even if your cards are just inside your wallets. That's pretty scary. Can you imagine, people stealing your credit cards or debit cards through a device even though you are careful with your cards? I can just imagine the horror that the victims felt. That is why you have to use rfid blocking wallets.
