Requirements for using mobile devices successfully for the online identification function
Not every mobile device can be used for directly reading or as a card reader. The following requirements for NFC technology must be supported by the device:
- Extended Length Communication
- NFC chip: sufficient field strength
- Android version 5.0 (upwards)
Automatic check if NFC is available
AusweisApp2 contains an automatic check of NFC capability that tells you whether your mobile device has NFC or not. If the test is negative, a Bluetooth card reader or a suitable Android smartphone can be used as a card reader.
