Nitrokey 3 NFC questions

Hello everyone,

I’m interested in ordering a Nitrokey 3, but I’m not sure whether to buy a Nitrokey with NFC or without. I tried to find out more information about how NFC on the Nitrokey 3 works, but unfortunately didn’t find any.

So my questions is: How does NFC work there? Is it only activated if I press the touch button or is it always active? What is the range of NFC (e. g. 10cm)?

Thanks a lot!

The touch button is not used in NFC mode. The range very much depends on the active NFC antenna (read: smartphone). the largest distance we experienced was ca. 1 cm.
