NFC FAQ

 / 0 Comments

What is NFC?

NFC (Near Field Communication) is a technology that enables devices (e.g. smartphones) to interact with the physical world by touching, tapping or waving near a tag. No swiping, inserting or pin entry needed and there’s no need to download an app or visit a website.

What is an NFC tag?

An NFC tag can be placed on or in various items, e.g. sticker, posters or wristbands. It contains a microchip which stores a small amount of information for transfer to an NFC device, such as a smartphone.

What can I use NFC for?

Touching your smartphone to an NFC tag can initiate different types of actions including a Facebook like,  Twitter follow, voucher download, digital tickets, opening a web page or video, entering a competition, prompting a call or SMS with a phone number or a Foursquare check in.
