Fake cards.... how to tell.

How can I tell if a card or usb stick is legitimate or fake?
Is that long number on the actual microSD card the serial number?
Is there a serial number on the packet? If so shouldn’t it mach what’s on the card?
What’s the best software to test for fake cards or usb sticks?

Cheers guys

Hi @H_L,

There is no software to check the authentication of products.
The best way to ensure you are purchasing an authentic SanDisk product is to buy from an authorized SanDisk reseller.

If you are concerned about the authenticity of your SanDisk product, you may contact SanDisk’s tech support and select the appropriate tech support option for your product.
