How NFC works in a Samsung phone​

Data is transmitted using electromagnetic fields. This technology has a low range. The NFS module transmits information at a distance of no more than 10 cm.

There are 2 types of NFC devices:
  • Passive ones. They store data for reading from another device. They cannot be used to access external information. These devices include contactless POS terminals or smart posters.
  • Active users. This type is able to read and execute the tag.
The main focus is on active NSAs. It is with their help that you can perform many useful actions. For example, you can make mobile transfers or send data in a contactless way. You just need to enable NFC in your Samsung smartphone at the time of payment or sending files.

Mobile payments​

Transferring funds via NFC is similar to making a physical payment with a bank card.

To complete the transaction, you will need:
  1. Activate the NFS.
  2. Log in to the program where the bank card is linked.
  3. Choose plastic.
  4. Bring your phone to the terminal.
  5. If necessary, enter a password or pass fingerprint verification.
  6. Wait for the money transfer.
Contactless payment takes an average of 2-4 seconds.

Wireless data transfer​

You can send important files or documents using the NSF and Android Beam.

This is the way users exchange information:
  • contacts;
  • photos and videos;
  • web pages, etc.
To transfer data, you need to attach mobile devices to each other. The smaller the distance between the phones, the faster the sending speed will be.

NFC tags​

These are small chips that store instructions for smartphones. If the device is located next to the NSF tag, it will automatically perform the operation specified in the tag.

When do I use placemarks?:
  • To switch your smartphone to silent or night mode. For example, when the owner of the device is on the bed.
  • To connect to Wi-Fi. You can hold your phone up to the placemark and it will connect to the wireless network by itself. If you have previously entered your Wi-Fi password, you will not have to enter it again.
  • To launch the necessary applications. After successfully scanning the placemark, the necessary services or programs will start on your phone.

How to set up NFC on Samsung​

First, you need to enable NFC on your Samsung phone. Without this, contactless transmission via the built-in module is not possible. Then you need to configure NFC to perform a specific operation. For example, to transfer money for an item in a store.

How to enable NFC​

You need to perform the following actions:
  1. Open settings in your phone. The specified shortcut is located on the desktop. In some Samsung models, the setting is available in the menu.
  2. Go to the "NFC and payment" section.
  3. Move the slider to active mode.
The NFS module is now enabled. You can transfer files or make transfers.

How do I know if NFC works in my phone or not? Go to settings and open the "NFC and Payment" section. If the built-in module is enabled, the slider will be active. Try sending the file to another device that has such a module installed. If the transmission fails, go back to the first step.

How to share files​

In addition to the NFS, you need to activate the Android Beam feature. This option allows you to transmit data over a short-range network.
  1. Go to the settings section.
  2. Open the "NFC and payment" menu. The upper slider should be in active mode.
  3. Click on "Android Beam".
  4. Choose " On "instead of"Off".
  5. Open the document to send.
  6. Click "Share".
  7. To transmit, select "Android Beam".
Normal file transfer requires both devices to be as close as possible. The distance between them should not be more than 10 cm. The closer the smartphones are, the faster the documents will be sent.

How to set up Samsung Pay and how to link a bank card​

The payment service is available on Samsung Galaxy and A-series smartphones. The main feature of the app is that it works with terminals that do not support contactless payment. Funds are transferred using a technology that mimics the magnetic stripe of a bank card.

You don't need an internet connection to work with the program. All the necessary information is stored in a special chip. This method allows you to ensure high security of data storage.

Several other features are available to improve the security of transfers:
  • Tokenization. There is no data about the plastic number in the program. Instead, the system uses a token. This is a code that consists of a random set of digits. If the scammers recognize it, they will not be able to do anything with the card.
  • Fingerprint confirmation. It is required when making purchases using a contactless method. The system scans your fingerprint and confirms the transfer. If a stranger loses their phone number, they won't be able to pay with someone else's bank card.
  • Samsung Knox. This is a system security application. The program encrypts data and prevents hacking attempts.

How to link a shopping card via NFC:
  1. Open Samsung Pay.
  2. Click on the "Launch" button.
  3. Add your fingerprint or password. You will need them to confirm the transaction.
  4. Click on the image with the map and select "Add".
  5. Enter the plastic card details or take a photo of the card.
  6. Select "Next".
  7. We pass verification via text message. You will receive a code on your phone. We enter it in the appropriate field and click "Send".
  8. Additionally, the payment service may ask you to add a personal signature. This is necessary for security.
After successfully linking the plastic, you can use NFC in your phone. However, before doing this, make sure to enable the module in the settings. Also make sure that the card has an available balance for debiting funds. Otherwise, the transfer will fail.

How to set up NFC for payment with a Sberbank card​

Sberbank cardholders need to:
  1. Go to Samsung Pay.
  2. Add a confirmation method.
  3. Go to the section with cards.
  4. Add plastic in the settings.
  5. Enter your first and last name and card details (number, expiration date, CVC / CVV code).
  6. Confirm the action via SMS.
  7. Enter your personal signature.
On a note! In Samsung Pay, you can link several cards from Sberbank at once.

How to make contactless payments​

Now you don't need to carry a bank card or cash to pay for goods in the store. If you have a Samsung mobile phone with NFC, you can make a contactless transfer directly from it.

How to pay for a purchase​

To transfer funds, you must:
  1. Log in to the payment app that the card is linked to.
  2. Choose a plastic card for payment.
  3. Complete authorization. Enter your password, graphic key, pass face verification, or use your fingerprint. The choice depends on the settings.
  4. Attach your phone number to the terminal at the checkout.
  5. Wait up to 3 seconds for the funds to be debited.
The payment procedure itself is simple. However, the choice of payment applications is quite large.

Mobile Wallet​

You can use a mobile wallet to make contactless payments using a Samsung phone with NSF. For example, a virtual account in Qiwi or Yumani.

Qiwi Mobile Wallet​

How to pay via NFC from a Samsung mobile phone and Qiwi card:
  1. Open the Samsung Pay app.
  2. Log in to your Samsung Account.
  3. Choosing the authorization method.

  • log in to Samsung Pay;
  • select a previously linked Russian Standard Bank plastic card;
  • pass verification;
  • attach your smartphone to the terminal;
  • make a transfer.

You can make a contactless transfer with Privat24 in the terminals with PayPass.

Difference between Samsung Pay and Google Pay​

Payment services for mobile devices have the following characteristics:

  • Attachment to a specific model. Samsung Pay is intended only for Samsung branded phones. Google Pay is available on all Android devices. Including on Samsung.
  • Extensive opportunities for payment with NFC. Samsung Pay has an option that reads magnetic strips. Google Pay doesn't have this option.
  • There are restrictions on the number of linked bank cards. The user can add no more than 10 bank cards for payment. Google Pay doesn't have this limit. Here, the smartphone owner can add as many cards as they need.
  • Higher security of personal data. When transferring funds for any amount via Samsung Pay, the user must complete authorization. Enter a password, graphic code, or show your fingerprint. In Google Pay, the requirements are lower. If the purchase amount is less than 1,000 rubles, then you don't need to pass identification. However, this works 3 times in a row. Then you will have to pass authorization.
  • You don't need the Internet. In Samsung Pay, all data is stored in the smartphone itself. Google also needs Internet access to communicate with a dedicated server.
  • It's easier to add a map. In Google Pay, you need to enter your plastic card details manually. You have to enter the plastic number, expiration date, and code on the back yourself. In Samsung Pay, you can speed up this process by taking a photo of the map.

Where is the NFC antenna usually located on Samsung phones?​

The location of the antenna depends on the device model.

It can be installed in one of the following locations:
  • in the case part of the smartphone;
  • under the back panel;
  • on the battery.

NFC in a Samsung smartphone has the following characteristics:
Signal frequency13.56 MHz
Speed of sending data424 kbaud
Time to establish a connection1 second
Optimal distance for communication with another deviceup to 10 cm

You can find out if this feature is available in the device description. For example, in the service book that is given at the time of purchase. You can also find such information on the Internet in free sources. Or on the official website of the developers.

What should I do if my device doesn't support NFC?​

If your Samsung phone doesn't have an NFC module, you can install it manually. To do this, use the following devices:
  • SIM card with NFC. Almost every mobile operator has such SIM cards. You can find out if this feature is available at the company's office. If you don't have a SIM card with the NSF, you can purchase one. This device will allow you to make contactless payments from your phone. You just need to bring the back panel of the phone to the payment terminal. After that, the money will be debited from your mobile account.
  • NFC antenna. You can buy such a device in the communication salon. The antenna itself is attached to the SIM card and inserted into the phone. During installation, you need to be extremely careful. If the slot is damaged, the phone may not function properly.
  • NFC tag. This is a small chip that is attached to the smartphone case. It only works with payment apps. The tag reads the device and executes payment-related commands.
The built-in module is compatible with any phone. Therefore, you should not immediately run to buy a new smartphone with NSF. You can also install the chip on an old device that did not initially have NFC.
