How to Turn On or Off NFC in Windows Phone 8 and 8.1

information   Information
NFC (near field communication) is a technology that allows two devices to "talk" to each other wirelessly at close range.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off near NFC tap + send, Tap to share, and Tap to pay in Windows Phone 8 and 8.1.

Note   Note
NFC isn't available on all phones. If you don't see the Settings options described in this tutorial, then your phone hardware probably doesn't have an NFC chip inside.


Here are some of the ways you can use NFC with Windows Phone:
  • Tap to share photos and more – Tap your phone to another NFC-capable device to quickly share photos, contacts, web addresses, and other things.
  • Tap to pair with another device – Tap your phone to an NFC-capable accessory (such as a pair of speakers or headphones) to pair it with your phone for Bluetooth communication.
  • Tap a tag to receive info – Tap your phone to an NFC-capable tag (such as a poster or business card) to open a website or an app.
  • Tap to make payments and other transactions – If your Windows Phone 8.1 and mobile operator support it, you can set up credit or debit cards to pay for things in stores that offer this service. You must have a payment SIM for this to work.
