Connecting via NFC (Android Only)

Establish a connection between an NFC-equipped mobile device and a device that you want to connect by using NFC function with one-touch ease.

Note

  • Before starting, activate the NFC function of the mobile device using its [Setting] menu.
  • The procedure for activating the NFC function of the connected device varies depending on the device. For details, refer to the instruction manual of the device.
  • When using a device installed with Android 6.0 or later, after changing the password for the SSID with a compatible device, a connection cannot be established even when performing NFC touch. In such a case, use the Wi-Fi setting of the mobile device to delete the SSID, then perform NFC touch again.
  • Depending on the mobile device, the NFC connection may fail or may disconnect after connecting. In this case, try the “Connecting via Wi-Fi” connection method.
  • When using a compatible device without an access authentication setting, step 2 is not required.
    Perform step 2 only when using a compatible device without a default access authentication setting or when the default access authentication setting has been changed.
  1. Place the N mark on your mobile device and the N mark on an NFC- equipped compatible device as close as possible for a while.
  2. Enter a [user name] and [password] which are set on the compatible device.

    If authentication is successful, the connection is established and the menu screen appears.

Note

  • Checking the [Show password] checkbox in the authentication dialog box displays the input password as plain text. Be aware that this may allow your password to be intercepted by a third party.
  • On the next connection, step 2 is not required because the successfully authenticated user name and password are saved to this application.
    If you want to delete the saved user name and password, see “Deleting the Registered User Name and Password.”
