Testimonials

Sam is innovative and insightful and with his help I have seen my brand grow and develop into something of which I am immensely proud. He fully understood where I was planning to take my business and knew immediately what I wanted and needed. He is extremely efficient and has gone beyond what I would normally expect from a branding expert in that he has shown me ideas and initiatives that I wouldn't have even dreamed of. If you are a business looking to build your brand or are looking to take your existing brand to another level, I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sam. - Adam Whittaker, Owner.

How to Scan an NFC Tag with an iPhone‍

For iPhone, the steps depend on which model you have.

iPhone X, XR, XS or newer

  1. The NFC tag is located under the contactless icon

  2. Tap the top of your iPhone to where the NFC tag is located

  3. A notification will appear at the top of your screen. Tap it to launch the experience.

iPhone 7 through to iPhone X

  1. Download the Decode App (other apps are available but we recommend this one)

  2. Launch the app and select NFC

  3. The NFC tag is located under the contactless icon

  4. Tap the top of your iPhone to where the NFC tag is located

Notes

  • The newest iPhones have NFC enabled natively without the need for an app

How to Scan an NFC Tag with an Android Phone

  1. The NFC tag is located under the contactless icon

  2. Touch the back of your device to where the NFC tag is located

  3. Depending on your device the experience should open after reading the NFC tag, you may be prompted to open your preferred internet browser / App

Notes

  • When trying to scan if an action is not immediately triggered, slowly move your phone around the NFC touchpoint until an interaction is triggered

  • Most Android phones natively have NFC capabilities

  • Depending on your phone manufacturer, NFC may be switched off by default. If your phone supports NFC but still doesn’t interact with the NFC tag, please follow the steps below

  1. Swipe down from the top of your screen to reveal settings.

  2. Click on the gear icon.

  3. From the list, select “Connected Devices”.

  4. Set the NFC switch to “on” to activate NFC.

Turning NFC on allows you to interact with NFC tags right from the home screen. In the event you want to deactivate NFC, follow the same steps you took above, and toggle the switch “off.” The main benefit of turning NFC off is to conserve battery.

Some Android devices have a toggle button directly in the control centre.
