Near Field Communication (NFC) is a wireless technology that allows the transfer of data such as a web address, text or numbers between two NFC devices. An NFC Tag is a small microchip containing a small amount of memory attached to an antenna/aerial which can store a small amount of information. This information can be transferred between two different NFC enabled phones/tablets.
