Credit card RFid downgrade

After reading the excellent article “Hacking the NFC credit cards for fun and debit ;)” by Renaud Lifchitz, my credit card suddenly seemed to be a tiny bomb in my wallet ^^ The solution suggested in the article did not satisfy me. I have no dog and I don’t want buy a new wallet… So, I decided to remove this shit by drilling a hole and cut the RFid coil.

An X-Ray capture of the credit card reveals the exact location of the coil:

A tiny hole and that’s all 🙂 The RFid capability is removed ! I’m safe ^^ (for now…)

The funny part ! Yearrrhhh
