How Do NFC Tags Work?
NFC tags work by storing little bits of information so it opens a world of convenience. The information could be a link to a website address, a YouTube video clip, a contact number, a downloadable restaurant menu, the location of a local pub or a whole bunch of other information type. The tag tells a smartphone what service or app to use to launch this information. This is done by tapping an NFC tag. You will need a smartphone with an NFC feature. Make sure you turn it on and tap to recall the information.
NFC is short for Near Field Communication. NFC triggers when a smartphone is right beside an NFC terminal or tag. Tapping the terminal or tag is the most common way of interaction. You have absolute control over what you want to connect to.
Turning on or enabling NFC is easy. Simply go to your settings menu and look for the NFC option tab. Turn it on you’re ready to go. Keep it on for ongoing connectivity because NFC doesn’t need much power so it will not drain your battery.
The location of your phone’s NFC “sweet spot” or touch point varies by manufacturer. You commonly find at the back or top of your phone. This is the best spot for interacting with an NFC tag. The optimum read range is up to 10 cm.
Look for the NFC mark. It means that you can interact with it. Tapping it activates an action, transaction or experience. You will find the mark on devices and on a variety of touch points in your physical environment so keep an eye out for the mark.
