Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a standards-based connectivity technology that makes it more convenient to make transactions, exchange digital content and connect devices. It is a technology enabling short-range wireless communication between various devices which helps prevent unauthorized communication. It is activated by bringing two NFC devices together with a maximum reading distance of about one centimeter.

Using NFC you can transfer information between your phone and other NFC devices, such as IC tags, phones and other mobile devices, payment devices and home audio and video devices. For example, you can share web addresses, contacts, phone numbers, music tracks, videos or photos.Image

NOTES:

  • Some devices will automatically turn on and be automatically paired just by using the NFC technology.
  • To check whether or not your device is compatible with NFC, refer to the manual.
