You already have your tin foil hat, and you're pretty sure no one can find you on the Google.
With the right equipment, these chips can be read from afar by data snoops or your friendly government official.

If you put a cellphone in a properly shielded microwave oven (don't turn on the oven and call the phone it should not ring.
The cell phone towers would be fried and be inoperable, period, so saving the cell is a waste of energy. One could buy a truck box storage case made of aluminum, and then change the seal to being of a metal mesh type. I'll see what kind of thing I can imagine and kludge together over the next few days, regarding simple ideas that can be done immediately and anywhere, not over a long time with unobtainable parts. However, for simplicity's sake, finding some larger aluminum based cans may be more effective in the case of the average person.
All this be as it may, understanding how to make that electrically conductive seal may be an important thing to know.
It took me a few minutes to figure out a more universal device (seal) that is available just about anywhere, from simple widely available components.
The way to secure the electrical contact, is to fold back one edge of the aluminum tape, and then run a strip of more aluminum tape over the folded back part of the tape, to secure it against the aluminum box casing. Peel back the adhesive protection layer from the aluminum tape and put the round or square sealed foam window seal down the center of the sticky side of the aluminum tape. Isn't it so that when a mass solar flair occurs, there is plenty of time on earth to see it coming and stuff the electrical equipment in this Cage? Well, we can never be sure if the people in charge will in fact ring the alarm before such thing happens.
Anyway, you can have a computer working with a generator indeed, but you?ll only be able to play games or type some texts with it, because in such situation there would be absolutely no internet connection, which is the most important tool on a computer these days. Everyday uses of the Faraday Cage concept includes the Microwave Oven which is used to contain microwave energy within the oven. It has been written that a Faraday Cage is not necessary to protect against an EMP resulting from a Solar Storm because the radiation particles are not concentrated enough to effect small electronics. In the event of a grid down scenario, prudent Preppers will have alternative sources of energy including a solar array or a generator.
Wrap each item that you plan on storing in the Faraday Cage in the heavy duty Aluminum Foil.
Place the items in the can and add at least one 50+ gram Desiccant Pack to absorb moisture within the Faraday Cage.
Seal the lid on tightly and as added protection, wrap the lid’s edge with the aluminum tape. A Faraday cage can be made out of any metal container such as tin canisters, filing cabinets, metal desks, garbage cans, or ammo cans. Start with a metal container and something to insulate the items inside from coming into contact with the metal: newspaper, magazines, cardboard, or styrofoam, which is my preference.
Some people say that if you wrap an item in a plastic baggie as your insulating layer, then wrap the baggie in tinfoil, that's all you need to do. Another reason for the extra layers of protection is that I'm going to be grounding this Faraday cage by attaching it to plumbing pipes. Next I've sealed up all the cracks and crevices in the metal box using aluminum tape, which is on the same shelf as the duct tape at your local hardware store.

Here I've clearly labeled what's inside the sealed box, to make it easier to locate stuff on the day after Doomsday. A closer view of the twisty wiring wrapping numerous times around the handle of the box and the copper pipes. There are many potential disasters to prepare for, but perhaps the one that deserves the most preparation is an EMP (electromagnetic pulse). Conclusion As you can see, building a DIY Faraday cage is a very inexpensive and straightforward process. However, there's one detail you may not have thought of, and that's those pesky RFID chips.
Cut a piece of aluminum foil slightly smaller, and make another duct tape and aluminum foil sandwich. Here you'll find all kinds of projects, hacks, tricks and tips on how to make each day better than the last. Microwave ovens are shielded to prevent microwaves from escaping, so should'nt the opposite be true? The possibilities lie in the area of 'raccoon' proof metal containers,and some chicken coop designs. SOME truck cargo boxes are pretty cheap AND made of aluminum, AND they are well sealed but with foam liners at the seal points, for weather proofing. However, the seal type would have to be an insert variety or type, so the following could be made. This can be a very cheap and immediate way to obtain the proper EMP proof seal for the truck bed box.
Even if you have a generator, you wont be able to buy fuel for it, and if you do, the generator would attract the attention of all looters and other loonies of the neighborhood, which is not a good thing.
Be sure to have somewhere to go in the woods, preferably a place with running water and some animals that you can hunt.
Also, the scan room of a Magnetic Resonance Imaging System, commonly referred to as an MRI, is designed as a Faraday Cage in order to prevent outside radio frequency interference from affecting the test results. However, as we advise fellow Preppers, we should prepare for worst case scenarios in our preparedness plans and an EMP resulting from a Nuclear attack is one such scenario. These alternative sources of power can run your electronic devices provided that they survive the effects of the EMP. Go to the hardware store and buy a 10′ copper encased grounding rod and pound it in the ground next to your driveway within easy distance of your vehicles.
Buy a flashlight that does not have led’s or fluorescent bulbs, these all use electronics as a ballast and will be fried by the CME leaving you and your family in the dark.
It's true that when you treat a radio or cell phone this way, the signal is lost, which indicates that electronic waves are not able to get through the barrier.
Not only does this prevent stray ions from penetrating the box, but it also prevents water from burst pipes from getting into the box. The easiest way to do that is to attach it to copper plumbing pipes, which go into the ground, thereby bleeding the electrical charges away from the box. I have several places in my home where the copper plumbing is accessible and I try to spread my various Faraday cages out so that if one gets crushed or drowned in a quake, I still have the others to fall back on. If you’ve done any previous research on prepping for disasters, then you’ve undoubtedly at least heard of EMP’s, and for good reason.
Once your electronic device has been fully wrapped in the cloth, wrap it further (and tighter) in plastic wrap. Now that your electronic device is fully wrapped in cloth and the cloth is wrapped in plastic wrap, proceed to gently wrap this packaging with at least three layers of aluminum foil.
Once this is completed, confirm that there are no holes in the aluminum foil and that every square inch of the packaging has at least three layers of aluminum foil surrounding it.

The materials only cost a few dollars, and if an EMP ever happens, you’ll be glad to have some working electronics. The trick is to find the extra mesh material and also the joining of the mesh with a conductive material of some sort, so the shield is complete and electrically robust, with low impedance. Michael Faraday was an English scientist who became well known in the early 1800′s for his work with electromagnetic induction, leading to the development of the modern generator.
The Faraday Cage, in its many forms, will distribute that charge or radiation around the exterior of the cage.
The biggest concern to Preppers is that an EMP will destroy power grid transformers resulting in a collapse of the power grid. A properly designed Faraday Cage will block the electromagnetic radiation created by the EMP thereby safeguarding any electronics stored inside.
Note, contrary to some reports, this step alone is insufficient to protect your gear from an EMP. When a potential CME from the sun happens, unhook the battery in your car and ground an unpainted part of the vehicle frame to the grounding rod with jumper cables. I prefer a more substantial Faraday cage than a single layer of ungrounded tin foil, but I tend to be a *little bit* OCD about my preps, so I'm going to hedge my bets and use BOTH tinfoil AND a metal box, so I'll be doubly protected. If you do not have copper pipes conveniently exposed, you can tie your wire to a stake driven into the ground or a metal fence post or some such. You want a 'FULL shield', that is the design parameter one is looking for.) The 5reason one has to do this, is that electrically solid and conductive 'containment seals' are very expensive and difficult to find. Technically, the Faraday Cage acts as a hollow conductor blocking the intrusion of the charge and distributing it around the external surface of the Faraday Cage. Jumper cables have the gauge of wire needed to ground your vehicle, this should help to protect it. I don't want my EMP preps to get ruined by flooding, so the extra layers are worth the extra effort. Even if you cannot ground your Faraday cage, it should still offer you more protection than no Faraday cage at all. Here I've made sure everything is thoroughly labeled so that if I'm frantically searching for my walkie-talkies, I don't have to rip open package after package in order to find them. We would literally have no power, no communications, no banking, no internet, no transportation, no running water, and no supply systems. You would think that making an apparatus that could truly shield your electronic devices from an EMP would be a complicated and expensive process, but it can be done with little more than a cardboard box, some aluminum foil, an old piece of cloth, and plastic wrap. They are defined as any kind of enclosure with an outside layer made out of electrically conductive material in order to block electric fields.
The size and shape of the enclosure does not matter, and the enclosure itself doesn’t have to be conductive. As you’ll soon see, it can simply be any normal enclosure or box wrapped in a conductive material such as aluminum foil. You will need the following items to build your DIY Faraday Cage: Aluminum Foil (preferably heavy duty). In this example, our electronic device will be an ordinary phone and our piece of cloth is an old T-shirt.
