Huawei "New Tag Captured" message appears - Solution

On a Huawei smartphone, the following information may suddenly appear on your screen: "New Tag Captured - Empty Tag".

If this message appears to you for the first time, you probably want to know what is going on with this message and how to avoid it.

Reason for the message "New Tag Captured"

This message is caused by the connection method NFC and a tag that has been detected. NFC stands for Near Field Communication and includes a transmission method over very short distances. Which tag is captured by NFC?

Often such a tag is hidden in the credit card (Mastercard, VISA etc.), which users of the Huawei smartphone put into a case (protective case, leather case etc.) of the smartphone.

If NFC is now activated on the Huawei smartphone, this tag is recognized in the credit card and the message "New tag entered" is displayed on the screen.

"Empty tag" because your Huawei smartphone cannot read the credit card NFC tag, of course.

To avoid this message in the future, you simply have to deactivate NFC in the Android settings on your Huawei smartphone. Just pull down the status bar and tap the corresponding toggle with NFC to deactivate this mode.

Alternatively, you can also remove the NFC tag, i.e. the credit card etc. from near the Huawei smartphone.

Now you know what the message on your Huawei smartphone is about and how to avoid this message in the future.

That's great feedback but everytime you want to do a tap and go you have to turn the NFC back on. Seems a clumsy fix.
This is my first andriod phone after years on an Iphone at this was never an issue.
