"That is the equivalent of installing a solid steel front door to your house and putting the key under the mat."
If you guys think the new biometric passports are made to be safer, with more security features you are totally wrong.
Our new biometric passport uses RFID chip so that it's information can be read wirelessly when open from somewhere near. It is said that it's data can also be read when it is slightly opened. When the data are read, they can be used to make fake biometric passport using the very cheap equipments sold online. That means, our government invest so much on this biometric RFID devices to promote more clone , theft to be done by the "bad people". WoW. Good job?
US, UK government decided to introduce the micro-chipped biometric passports in order to make theft more difficult, but an investigation led by the Guardian has shown the respective passports can be easily read and copied.
RFID chips can increasingly be read surreptitiously, often from distances far greater than the six inches which designers originally claimed, we might like to consider investing in a metal cigarette or cigar case large enough to hold their passport.
Going biometric ( Which means more exposure to danger)...
