Off Pocket: A Smartphone Accessory That Blocks All Cellular Tracking

If you’re uncomfortable with the idea of being constantly tracked, traced, and distracted, then this smartphone accessory is for you. The product is similar to a soft pocket-like case for your iPhone that gives you additional protection against unwarranted surveillance. Think of it as a wi-fi black hole.

Perfect for uncover journalists or those paranoid about the all-seeing police state, the OFF Pocket offer the following shields:

  • Shields over 100dB
  • Blocks frequencies between 800MHz – 2.4 GHz
  • Blocks CDMA/GSM/DCS/PHS/3G/4G
  • Blocks WiFi (2.4GHz), Bluetooth (2.4Ghz), and GPS (1-2GHz)
  • Carrier, hardware, and OS agnostic

Since the product is on Kickstarter, you can donate $75 for your own OFF Pocket, or for additional protection, Pledge $425 for an ‘Anti-Drone’ Hoodie, $500 for an ‘Anti-Drone’ Hijab, or $3,500 for an ‘Anti-Drone’ Burqua.
