Near Field Communication (NFC) is a wireless communication technology a bit like WiFi or Bluetooth.
It allows the transfer of data between two devices, such as a mobile phone and NFC tag. Typically, NFC is used to pass data from one device to the other.
So you might use NFC to pass data from an NFC enabled mobile phone to another NFC enabled mobile phone, from a mobile phone to a payment terminal or from an NFC tag to a mobile phone.
At You ID Me we use NFC tags embedded in some of our SMART ID products to provide a link to a secure database where our customers create an emergency ID profile.
We're a small team working extremely hard to ensure that carrying ID is secure, easy and affordable for our customers.
