SkimProt is a multilayer protective label placed above the magnetic stripe of bank cards, thus hiding the cardholder's personal information and making the card skimming proof. While completely covering the original information, SkimProt communicates with the ATM hardware through its own magnetic stripe via universal service codes and orders the machines to request the information from the much more secure EMV chip. SkimProt offers a preventive solution to a widespread problem through very simple and effective means, which allows it to function in complete transparency, granting benefits to financial institutions and end users alike.
According to the FBI, skimming is the copying of data from the magnetic stripe of the bank card by means of an illegal scanner (skimmer). Skimmers installed on ATMs are usually very hard to detect. Users don't even notice that their card data is being copied while they are using the machine. In shops, dishonest employees skim the cards of their clients by means of miniature hand-held readers. Now there are even viruses that can be used by hackers to infect ATMs and POS terminals, and which serve as virtual skimmers.
SkimProt is a high-technology sticker protected by an international patent. It comprises four layers that safeguard smart cards from data theft and fraud.
Protective layer - a protective coating shields the sticker during the daily use of your bank card.
Magnetic layer - a magnetic stripe containing a code, instructing ATMs to use the card's chip and zeros in place of card information.
Screening layer - a material designed specifically for SkimProt, covering completely the information contained in the card's magnetic stripe.
Adhesive layer - a specialised glue that adheres securely to the card and at the same time can be easily peeled off if necessary.
SkimProt is so simple and easy to use that anyone can do it. Simply peel off the sticker from our packaging and place it over your magnetic stripe. There is no need for additional activation procedures or complex application actions. Its effect is immediate and 100% skimming proof.
