How to stop NFC from opening URL on Android?
Posted on 2016-09-16
I have a NFC ring that I am basically using as a cheap alternative to a fingerprint censor for my Android cellphone. I have added it as a trusted device to unlock my phone successfully.
But, the ring seems to have an embedded URL in it, that auto opens just after I unlock the phone, much to my annoyance.
The URL opens nothing currently, but no doubt interacts in someway with a requisite Chinese based company app (with waaaaay too many permissions, camera, microphone, contacts...bank accounts...etc LOL ) that I dont want to install on my phone.
Anyway, does anyone know how to disable how Android deals with built in NFC actions? Note, I do not have any third party "actions" app installed that would be causing this behavior.
Thanks a lot for the help and insight:-)
