Near Field Communication (NFC™) is a standards-based connectivity technology that makes it more convenient to make transactions, exchange digital content and connect devices.
Using NFC you can transfer information between your phone and other NFC devices, such as 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.
NFC tags are small programmed information areas that can be embedded on posters, on billboard advertisements or next to products in retail stores. Touching a tag can give you additional information such as maps, web addresses and movie trailers.
NFC is activated by bringing two NFC devices together. The maximum reading distance is about one centimeter, which helps prevent unauthorized communications.
