**Off topic** Samsung Tags

by Raleigh   April 13, 2013  

Hello

I know this is off topic, but Its really annoying.

Every so often, and it only happens when I'm in London, my Samsung makes this funny clicking noise and the next time I turn it on it says something like:

Tag Received
Confirm/Delete

1). What are they?
2). How do I turn them off?
3). Does it make any difference if I press confirm or delete, because I do so interchangeably in the hope that they'll turn off?

Thanks,

LL

Do you have an app called Samsung TecTile installed?

Other another app that is bringing up NFC tags (Near field communications)

That's all I can think it would be, I guess you have an S3 or a Note?

It is NFC compatible, so I guess you are going near tags and the signal is being picked up. Just ignore them
