This new app can protect you from credit card skimmers
Credit card skimmers on gas pumps and ATMs are more common than you think — and anyone (including yours truly) can get hit by them.
Now, there’s an app that might just stop you from getting stung in the future.
The app, currently only available for Android, works by looking for a Bluetooth module nearby that’s commonly used in modern credit card skimmers. The module sits on a palm-sized circuit board, and it can be plugged into a credit card reader, hidden from sight, which steals every card number that it reads.
