Do Faraday bags that block cell phone signals really work?

Modern cell phones are highly complex, with a lot of delicate electronic hardware controlled almost entirely by microprocessors and software. While this is good news for functionality, it is bad news for security. For devices such as smartphones, software controls almost everything about the phone, including how and when it turns on and off. In other words, your phone “has a mind of its own”, including what you understand as “turning off”.

The complex software systems of mobile phones are, to put it mildly, largely beyond the control of users. Especially for smartphones equipped with microphones, cameras, location and environmental sensors, and communication links, bugs (or backdoors) and security vulnerabilities in the software that controls them can have serious privacy implications.

It is difficult for people to completely turn off software-based devices (such as smartphones) reliably. This is not a persecution fantasy, and some mobile phone manufacturers even regard it as a thoughtful feature. For example, some Apple iPhones continue to send “Find My Device” tracking beacons even when they are turned off. Even on devices that do not “officially” support this feature, criminals or malware can generate similar behavior, turning your phone into a permanent secret tracking device, whether you have “turned it off” or not. The risk of “fake shutdown” is compounded by the fact that many of the latest smartphones use non-removable batteries. cell phone jammer

For those who want to isolate their phones from the world in certain scenarios and completely shield their mobile phone radios (including sending and receiving cellular base station information, wifi, Bluetooth and NFC near-field communications, and GPS positioning signals), a well-known and popular method is to throw the phone into something called a “Faraday bag.”

The Faraday cage effect produced by the Faraday bag can severely weaken or even shield the radio signals of the devices inside, and is widely used to ensure that untrusted devices (such as mobile phones) send and receive signals in uninformed or inappropriate scenarios. The principle of a Faraday cage is simple: it is just a solid conductive container that completely encloses the signal source, so that the RF voltage difference between any two points on the cage is always zero.
