US Passports have RFID as well. Although the information is encrypted (ish),
my understanding is that they can tell what country you are from. As in (If you get a response, and they look American, they probably are!)

We use RFID Passport cases to block this. Avoiding being scanned. Anyone can build a domed signal amplifier and increase the range (in fact, the "repeater" version of this is being used to unlock high end cars by pinging against the keys in the house, boosting the signal and tricking the car to unlock the door here in the states).

So, my keys go inside a metal cup when in the house.

I use these for my credit cards: Amazon RFID Pouches[^] (12 for about 10USD)

What I did was to CUT one long edge open, and a small flap on the corner. This lets me slip the card in and out naturally. But it appears to work quite well. I put 2 cards in one pouch. The two I use all the time.
