NFC Use Cases

NFC has many impressive use-cases due to its form factor and convenient scan-ability.

Exclusive Content

Products embedded with NFC can also provide exclusive content to customers, using NFC rolling code as a key to ensure only those with an original product can access the content. This exclusivity allows things like eTickets, mp3s, videos, and more to be included with purchase. Transforming physical items into an omnichannel experience opens up new …

Product Authentication

Counterfeits have arisen as a real threat to customers seeking legitimate products, especially with fakes increasingly sold on legitimate sites like Amazon, Facebook, and Instagram. While some brands try to thwart these efforts with holograms, micro-threading, and QR codes, NFC provides the most secure product authentication. Once a legitimate product is embedded with NFC at …

Password Replacement

Let’s face it. Remembering passwords is hard. Every password should be unique, and every site has its own password requirements. It’s a lot to remember. There has to be a better way. And with NFC there is. Using a physical chip, NFC enables users to authenticate themselves to systems such as websites, apps, physical doors, …

Security

One of the most powerful uses of NFC is security. Similar to how NFC payments are made more secure with a rolling code, the same technology can be used to verify users, products, and ensure content exclusivity.

Embedded Experiences

Because NFC tags are small, durable, lightweight, and inexpensive they can be embedded into physical products that would otherwise have no digital connectivity. Once embedded with NFC, those products can drive to online content …

Pairing Bluetooth devices, or connecting to a new Wi-Fi network can be a real pain, especially if you forgot the password. NFC tags remove these pains by pairing devices with just a tap. Because NFC chips can securely store passwords and can relay pairing information, they are a great way to seamlessly connect a phone …

Payments

NFC may be most well known for mobile payments, where it powers services like Apple Pay and Google Wallet. These solutions make shopping simple, with tap-to-purchase and added security. Instead of using the same credit card number for each transaction, mobile payment solutions leverage the power of NFC card emulation to generate a single-use transaction …

Keyless Entry through NFC Security Kiosks

NFC smartphones can confirm a user’s identity, which is a great fit for security kiosks. For low-to-medium level security applications, using NFC technology to gain entrance is gradually replacing ID badges as the preferred method of managing automated entry. Users may sometimes misplace or forget an ID badge, but users rarely are without their smartphone!

Cashless Payments

Many smartphone payment systems, such as Google Wallet, utilize NFC to allow users to simply “tap and pay” through NFC-readers, such as self-checkout payment kiosks. The user’s credit card or bank account is configured through the payment app on their phone, and by simply tapping or even swiping their phone near the NFC-reader, the transaction …
