There are a lot of reasons to be worried about your privacy these days. It seems as though our emails, phone calls and texts are all subject to viewing by a government agency somewhere. You can prevent this sort of tracking by using some services to encrypt your messages, but what about the fact that your phone can be used to track your location at any given time? You’ll need some extra protection against that.
The OFF Pocket is a small pouch for your phone that blocks virtually every signal that is sent to and from your phone. This includes WiFi, cellular and GPS signals. This is accomplished by using a special fabric that’s made up of metalized fibers. These fibers are able to block any signals that try to get through. The exterior of the case is both strong, and repels water, to ensure that your phone is safe and sound inside the pocket. Interestingly, they’ve chosen to hold the opening flap in place by using elastic bands, rather than any other fastener.
If you need to make sure that you can’t be tracked down, even when your phone is turned off, this OFF Pocket will set you back $85 on their Kickstarter page. Personally, I can’t recall a time that I was ever concerned that someone was tracking my location, but I suppose it’s simply the principle of the matter.
