Companies are duping people into buying fake Faraday cages they say will block harmful radiation and 5G, but keep home WiFi signal intact.
A real Faraday cage, however, would block all electromagnetic radiation, including WiFi; these are basically just overpriced metal cages.
It looks like this is a ploy to take advantage of conspiracy theorists that believe false claims that 5G causes cancer or spreads COVID-19.
Let's say you hate 5G and genuinely believe it causes cancer or spreads COVID-19, despite there being no evidence to support those wild conspiracies.
This may sound like a made-up scenario, but 5G truthers really have bought these devices in droves.
If they were real Faraday cages, none of your home WiFi signal would come through.
So apparently putting Faraday cages around routers has become a thing for the 5g conspiracy nuts and there are companies out there ready to cash in. »
