What is NFC Technology ?

Cos'è la Tecnologia NFC ?

NFC stands for Near Field Communication and is the technology that allows two devices to communicate wirelessly with each other.

To be clear, it is the same technology used in contactless payments, but in the case of myLink it is used differently... that is, for the exchange of data.

Proximity communication, also called Near-Field Communication (NFC), is a transceiver technology that provides short-range (up to a maximum of 1-2 cm) bidirectional wireless (RF) connectivity at a distance (contactless). jointly by Philips, LG, Sony, Samsung and Nokia.

NFC technology evolved from a combination of contactless identification or RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) and other connectivity technologies. Contrary to the simpler RFID devices, NFC allows bidirectional communication: when two NFC devices (the initiator and the target) are brought together within a radius of 1-2 cm, a peer-to-peer network is created between the two and both can send and receive information.

Ok but... how does it work with myLink?

All our Products contain an NFC chip inside them.

The latter is "written" previously by us.

Once the customer has one of our products, he will create his myLink account.

To create the Account you do not need to download an Application as myLink works via any Browser (Chrome, Safari, etc.).

The created Account is automatically linked to the purchased product.

To share your myLink profile, simply bring your device close to a new generation smartphone.

Interesting... do all smartphones have NFC?

Currently over 80% of all smartphones support this technology.

In some cases, such as some Android models, NFC connectivity will have to be activated from Settings or in iPhone models prior to iPhone X, NFC will have to be activated from the control center by swiping up.

Where is the NFC reader located in smartphones?

  • On Androids it is located in the central part on the back.
  • In iPhones at the top of the smartphone
