Near Field Communications (NFC) is used by some smart chips to provide Identity Information


Many locations where a large number of Identity checks must be made at high speed, such as passports and door access methods, give the user an Identity Card with an imbedded NFC chip for easy access.


It's easy to read an NFC chip without the user's knowledge.


  • Some providers of Identity cards also give the user a tinfoil envelope to block reading of the chip, for example if a user gets an enhanced Driver's License in the state of Washington, they are provided such an envelope.
  • Apple had blocked their phones from reading NFC data, but was forced to allow access by the UK government in order to make it easier for the UK government to check the Identity of people passing into the country.[1]
