About this app

NFC EMV Card Reader reads and stores data and information from contactless payment cards (credit, debit, prepaid, etc...) on your Android based device.
Using this application you can read data from your existing plastic or digital payment card.

Features (or what you are able to do):
• Read, store & manage multiple payment cards
• View accessible application data & records
• Extract sensitive payment cards information
• View "Track 2" data (which is most actively used in payment card processing)
• Take a look at the last made transactions

Additional information:
• POS/POP terminals all around the world use the EMV standard to process contactless transactions.
Using this application you will be able to see an example communication between a POS/POP device and the payment card you want to read.
• Important - No fees are charged for using this application.
It also means that the payment cards you read will NOT be charged at all.
• The application can be mainly used for references or analysis.
• If you are going to read digital payment card data from another Android device (for example from Google Pay, Android Pay or other digital wallet app), you have to disable Android Beam on both devices before you get started.

Before you start reading:
• Make sure payment card(s) you want to read is/are contactless (RFID logo printed on it).
• Make sure payment card(s) is/are currently supported by this application.
• Enable NFC (Near-field communication) from Settings (if it is not enabled).

Security notes:
• Application uses only "NFC" and "VIBRATE" permissions. There is no "INTERNET" permission. It means that no data is being sent & stored by the developer.
• Payment cards data is stored privately into a database on the device used as reader.

Technical information:
• Operating device must have NFC hardware which is required for this application.

• This software must only be used to read your own payment cards where legally appropriate. It must not be used for illegal purposes.
• This software is provided without any warranty and shall be used at your own risk. The risk is small but your payment cards may become unusable.

Subsidiaries or/and trademarks:

This is scary... How is this so easy? I'm definitely going to be cutting the NFC coil of my cards... 😳 By the way, it didn't work on some of my cards... But that's just because the app hasn't been programmed to understand them (since they are all a little bit different). Good job with app, it does exactly as described, although I wish that wasn't possible... 🤦

Used it to read a cancelled card. Delivers a surprising amount of information. Glad I made the purchase, although I'm wary about where this data could end up being sent to. The author asserts he doesn't collect information, my worries are that others might be able to.
