How does Near Field Communication work?
The tech involved is deceptively simple: evolved from radio frequency identification (RFID) tech, an NFC chip operates as one part of a wireless link. Once it's activated using your smartphone, small amounts of data between the two devices can be transferred when held a few centimeters from each other.
Which is better NFC or Bluetooth?
NFC tends to be more secure than Bluetooth, as it operates on a shorter range allowing for a more stable connection. Therefore, NFC tends to be a better solution for crowded and busy places, where a lot of different devices are trying to communicate with each other, creating signal interference.
