Demagnetizing Credit Cards

Over time the magnetic strip on all credit cards will deteriorate. This is why credit cards have an expiry date. Holding a magnet to the magnetic strip will indeed demagnetize a credit card, but the important factor here is the strength of the magnet. The larger the magnetic field, the more likely it is to effectively demagnetize the magnetic strip.

Magnet Fields From Your Phone

So, does your phone produce a magnet field? The answer is yes, but it isn't strong enough demagnetize your credit cards. The only source of a magnet field in your phone is the very small magnet is the speaker, which is too weak to damage your credit cards. Even if you were to carry your credit cards right up against your phone in your pocket, it wouldn't cause any issues.

Credit Card Phone Cases

Multi-purpose wallets can help make your daily routine more efficient, not to mention they're extremely convenient too. If you're at all concerned about the potential for your phone's magnetic field to corrupt your credit cards but you still want the convenience of keeping all of your valuables in one case, a wallet with a built-in phone case will serve you well. It has a separate outside pocket for your smartphone, while all of your cards and cash are safely stored inside the wallet itself. Layers of fabric keep your credit cards and your phone from ever touching eliminating any risk of damage.
