Lock Wallet Reviews
Lock Wallet promises to keep credit cards and identities safe by providing a safe housing for important smart cards. It uses RFID-blocking material to prevent skimming, or the stealing of information transmitted by modern credit cards.
As we have noted in our review for Card Lock, the need for RFID blocking gadgets is debatable. A lack of real-world cases, coupled with the fact that thieves could only use a card once makes the threat largely overblown. It has also been pointed out that a skimmer may only download a garbled mess if attempting to skim a wallet containing more than one RFID card.
Finally, DIY types have shown that a simple piece of aluminum foil can also serve to block RFID signals in the same manner as products like this.
Those reassurances aside, there are those who prefer to go the extra mile and protect their credit cards with such products as Lock Wallet, which provides an extra barrier of security. Our product researchers feel that Lock Wallet is certainly a viable option regarding RFID-blocking wallets. It holds a large number of items and appears to be well-constructed. It sports more of a purse-like design than that of a wallet, which may affect consumer satisfaction with the design. In fact, the design is slightly reminiscent of an older As Seen on TV product known as Touch Purse, which we have still seen in As Seen on TV stores as of 2016. We don’t feel that Lock Wallet will fit in the back pocket as comfortably as wallets with a standard design.
Due to the limited number of television advertisements, Lock Wallet appears to be in the test marketing phase, which could mean some early reviews may complain of slow shipping. Those who review the merits of the product itself will are more likely to give it positive reviews.
Lock Wallet does not have a pouch for cash as most consumers have become accustomed with regular wallets. Cash can still be stored inside, but not in the manner achieved with most wallets.
There are numerous RFID-blocking wallets available at Amazon, ranging anywhere from $13-$40. Most of these products are highly-rated.
We feel that Lock Wallet is a viable choice for those shopping for an RFID-blocking wallet. While the risks presented in the advertising may be overblown, many consumers prefer to purchase products such as this for peace of mind. Lock Wallet doesn’t look or feel like a standard wallet, which could negatively affect consumer satisfaction, especially men who are accustomed to the feel of a standard wallet in their back pockets.
