Near Field Communication (NFC) allows the transferring of data between devices that are a few centimeters apart, typically back-to-back. NFC must be enabled for NFC-based apps (e.g. Android Beam) to function correctly.
From a Home screen, swipe up from the center of the display to access the apps screen.
These instructions only apply to Standard mode and the default Home screen layout.
Navigate: Settings > Connections > NFC and payment.
Tap the NFC switch (upper-right) to turn on or off .
