NFC stands for “Near Field Communication” and, as the name implies, it enables short-range communication between compatible devices. NFC technology allows users to make secure transactions, exchange digital content, and connect electronic devices with a touch. NFC transmissions are short range (from a touch to a few centimetres) and require the devices to be in close proximity.
NFC is the technology in contactless cards and the most common use of NFC technology in your smartphone is making easy payments with Samsung Pay. NFC can also be used to quickly connect with wireless devices and transfer data.
