NFC or Near Field Communication is capability of two devices to send data to each other when they are brought into close proximity. Nowadays, it is generally used in form of NFC tags which can be read by mobile devices such as Android based tablets and smartphones. NFC usage varies from launching specific websites or for other actions such as providing Wi-Fi configuration to visitors at a café. And, the availability of NFC encoding apps like Tagster have made them even more versatile and functional.

Web applications running in SureFox can take advantage of NFC Tags . SureFox can provide the lockdown of the device with access to only allowed webpages and NFC tags can be configured to launch those webpages. Each product then can have a NFC tag encoded with a web url pointing to a web page containing detailed information about the product. The customer now has to just bring the locked android device close to the product to view the product’s detailed information within the browser.


To enable NFC option in your Android device, follow below mentioned steps:

1. Tap on Settings from the menu.

2. On Settings screen, tap on more settings option.

3. On more settings screen, tap and enable NFC option.

4. Once done, your Android device will read all NFC Tags when brought in proximity.
