Technology is a very fast paced world and it's pretty difficult to keep up if you miss a single beat. Also, technology is hard to accept sometimes. Both of these come into play when we talk about Near Field Communication (NFC) and how it can help us. NFC is used in many ways, and of course, all of them are meant to help you. However, one of those ways ask that you take a big bite of courage and be willing to accept the future. I know some of you are too hesitant to trust electronics with sensitive material such as credit or debit card information. I'd like to attempt to show you the ease and security behind NFC mobile payments in hopes to help you check out faster at the register and also help alleviate some of those worries that you may have towards the future of technology.
Both Google and Apple, the leading competitors and operating system manufacturers in the world, are leading the charge on NFC mobile payments. The idea is simple. Where you would typically swipe your debit or credit card at the register, instead you would tap the back of your phone to the tap and pay touch pad. The hard part is understanding the technical functionality behind the process. And that is where most of you probably clam up. I feel confident that showing you the process of setting up NFC mobile payments on your phone, walking you through how you would check out at the register, and then addressing a few security FAQs should do the trick.
