NFC is a transmission standard to exchange data wirelessly. An Android smartphone with NFC can, for example, read an NFC tag and start functions on the device. In addition, services such as Google Pay allow the smartphone to be used to pay in the same way as a bank card in a local store.
NFC should be disabled for security reasons unless it is used frequently. On almost all Android devices that have an NFC chip, the feature can be turned on or off.
