NFC or Near Field Communication is a method of wireless data. It is usually used by itself, but occasionally used in conjunction with other technologies like Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. NFC has a range of about 4 inches or 10 centimeters. While some may view it as a hinderance, it allows for more security and privacy allowing the technology to be used in many contactless payment solutions such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, as well as other uses such as electronic hotel room keys and public transit fare tickets.
