Smartphone users will soon have the option to disable their NFC (Near Field Communication) features

RFID Protect announces a new NFC app for smartphones

In early November 2011, BBC News services reported that malware attacks on UK Android Apps, and smartphone fraud in general, had risen by a staggering 800% since this time last year!!!!

Meanwhile, RFID Protect is developing a solution for smartphone users wary of this technology.  It comes in the shape of a simple flexibly designed App that will be launched late 2012, and made available to download from www.rfidprotect.co.uk

So before too long, iPhone and Android users will have the option to disable their NFC (Near Field Communication) feature and as our motto goes “MAKE YOURSELF INVISIBLE’ to would be phone hackers, e-pickpockets and e-payment skimmers.

We’re exploring the scope for a timer function too – so users get to determine the amount of time their smartphone can be accessed by third parties.
