MuteCard contains a noise transmitter. The noise transmitter is activated when there is an active scanner nearby. It is the reading field of a scanner that provides power to MuteCard – so the stronger the scanner, the more noise the MuteCard emits.
Metal wrapping of contactless cards and metal in purses do not protect against powerful scanners – so does MuteCard.
If there is an active scanner nearby, MuteCard lights up and you can see that it works.
