Proxmark 3 RDV4 Kit Review

Proxmark 3 RDV4

Hello friends how are you all doing its been a while that I have published any new article on the site, because I was quite busy with my exams and office work that I didn’t get much time to write about anything but now I am done with my exams and you can probably tell how they went ;P.

I have been very interested in RFID hacking and Proxmark 3 as it is the gold standard in the RFID hacking world and finally I got the latest version Proxmark 3 RDV4 <3. With this updated version of Proxmark there are many big improvements to the design which I absolutely love.


The Proxmark 3 RDV4 is a dedicated, highly-capable multi-tool for RFID analysis, providing reading, writing, analysis, snooping, replaying, emulation, modulation, demodulation, decoding, encoding, decryption, encryption for any RFID system operating in the 125KHz, 134KHz, and 13.56MHz frequencies.

Since its original creation in 2007, there have been huge leaps in the electronics field. The new Proxmark is a fully revised, modernized version of the already powerful RDV2.

Proxmark3 RDV4:-

This is the latest version of Proxmark 3 platform. The RDV 4 revision represents a very optimized piece of hardware which targets the pen-testing community and more specifically the “Physical Pen-testing teams”. Main highlights of this version are:

  • Covert: Fits easily into a hand and pocket
  • Modular: Rapidly switch pre-tuned antennas for more range when in the field
  • Intuitive: Multiple Status LEDs for at-a-glance status checking
  • Android Compatible: Works with Project Walrus for automated red-teaming
  • Expandable: BLE/Wifi module expansion capability for automated data egress


This is the most optimized tool for pen-testing where performance and discretion are utmost priorities.

These is the comprehensive list of overall improvements that are made to this version of Proxmark.


Business card sized, ABS case. 


Updated CPU and over 8x memory.


Highly optimized internal antennas.
