If i put my magnet in a faraday bag will it block it from being detected by the towers ?

The magnets shouldn't set off towers anyway but if you walk in and the alarms beep be careful because they might be watching you more closely

Just tried it at a dollar store with towers. No alert with multiple magnets. Was just checking this page and thought I'd give an update since I was about to go in.

That's kinda the point of the bag.

The point of the bag is to stop electrical signals emitted by anti-theft RF tags. This has nothing to do with a magnet's magnetic field; they're two separate things.

aluminum foil will help, i dont think any security towers will detect a magnet you brought from outside the store.
