How do I get rid of NFC tag not supported?
Subsequently, one may also ask, why does my phone keep saying NFC tag not supported?
The message "NFC tag type not supported" is displayed by the Android system (or more specifically the NFC system service) before and instead of dispatching the tag to your app. This means that the NFC system service filters MIFARE Classic tags and never notifies any app about them.
Just so, what is NFC tag type?
NFC (Near Field Communication) is a wireless connection which can be used to transfer information to and from your mobile phone. By holding your mobile phone close to an NFC tag or NFC reader you can pay for groceries, connect to websites or call a phone number and more.
If your device has NFC, the chip and Android Beam need to be activated so that you can use NFC:
- On your Android device, tap on “Settings.”
- Select “Connected devices.”
- Select “Connection preferences.”
- You should see “NFC” and “Android Beam” options.
- Turn both of them on.
