Faraday bag - What is it?
Faraday bag is a specific type of a faraday cage. It consists of a mesh made of conductive material, which is wrapped in a rip-stop nylon for better durability and wear resistance. Faraday bags are used mainly by forensic experts to prevent remote tampering with seized devices, by corporations to protect their employee´s data or by individuals to prevent their pay-pass credit cards or keyless entry fobs from signal amplification and subsequent theft.
- Who uses Faraday bags?
Faraday bags are mostly used by law enforcement and forensic experts for safe transport and investigation of mobile devices to prevent remote tampering with the evidence.
- What are Faraday bags made of?
Faraday bags are made of a multi-layer conductive mesh, which forms a reliable Faraday cage. This mesh is then coated by rip-stop nylon for protection and durability.
- What about private and commercial use?
Corporations can use Faraday bags to protect their employees and information during sensitive meetings or when travelling. Individuals use Faraday bags to protect their pay-pass credit cards, IDs and keyless entry car fobs.
- Do you also have Faraday bags with windows?
Faraday bags with windows are specially designed for lab use so an investigator keeps control of what´s going on on the display and can interact with the device. And of course we have them here.
- Are Faraday bags reliable?
Yes, they are. FWR Faraday bags cover all common signals (2G, 3G and 4G cellular networks, Bluetooth 1, 2, 3, 4 and WiFi and SatNav/GPS signals) with effective shielding up to 60 dB. Test measurements were carried out at the University of Bundeswehr in Neubiberg, Germany in January 2018.
- 800MHz: 50 dB
- 900MHz: 56 dB
- 1.8 GHz: 60 dB
- 2.1 GHz: 58 dB
- 2.45 GHz: 58 dB
- 2,6 GHz: 54 dB
At 60 dB only one millionth of the radiation power hitting the bag from the outside reaches the sealed pocket. At 50 dB it is 10 millionths of the power. This proves FWR Faraday bags provide a world-class quality in mobile device protection.
