How do I enable my NFC?

Answered by Stephen Mosley

To enable NFC on your Samsung Android phone, follow these steps:

1. Go to the settings menu on your device. You can usually access this by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping the gear icon, or by finding the settings app in your app drawer.

2. In the settings menu, scroll down and look for the “Connections” option. Tap on it to open the connections settings.

3. Within the connections settings, you should see an option for NFC and contactless payments. Tap on it to access the NFC settings.

4. In the NFC settings, you will find a switch to turn NFC on or off. Tap the switch to enable NFC on your device. Once the switch is turned on, it will be colored or highlighted to indicate that NFC is now active.

5. Now that NFC is enabled, you can further customize your contactless payment settings. This is where you can choose your preferred mobile payment service, such as Google Pay or Samsung Pay. Tap on the option that corresponds to your desired payment service.

6. If you haven’t installed the chosen mobile payment service, you will be prompted to download and install it from the Google Play Store. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

7. Once the mobile payment service is installed, you may need to set it up by adding your payment cards or linking your accounts. This process will vary depending on the chosen payment service, so follow the instructions provided by the app.

8. After setting up your mobile payment service, you will be able to use NFC for contactless payments. Simply hold your phone near a compatible payment terminal or another NFC-enabled device to initiate the payment.

It’s worth mentioning that the steps may slightly vary depending on the specific model of your Samsung Android phone and the version of the Android operating system it is running. However, the general process should be similar across most Samsung devices.

I hope this helps you enable NFC on your Samsung Android phone. If you have any further questions or need additional assistance, feel free to ask.
