General

PhoneTag is a small adhesive tag placed on the back of your phone that lets you instantly share your social media, contact info, website music, payment platforms, or anything else just by tapping your tag with a compatible smartphone!

The other person does not need an app or a PhoneTag to receive your info.

You can share:

• A specific link (e.g. your Instagram)

• Your contact card (automatically includes all of your links)

• Your PhoneTag profile (allows someone to choose from all your links)

• iPhone & most Androids: the bottom back of your phone

• Samsung Galaxy & Note: the top back of your phone

Test the placement of your PhoneTag before sticking it on your phone.

Incorrect placement will cause your phone to read its own tag and constantly send you notifications.

No, PhoneTags need to be activated and configured with a phone, but they can be placed anywhere.

So, you can put a PhoneTag on:

• Restaurant tables

• Store windows

• Reception and checkout counters

• Laptops

• Anywhere you might normally see a QR code

Yes. You can activate as many PhoneTags as you want with your account in the PhoneTag app.

Troubleshooting

1) Make sure your Phone Tag has been activated and you’ve added your info in our app.

2) Make sure their iPhone model is compatible.

• If they have an iPhone 7, 8, or X, make sure they click “NFC” in their control center in order to read your tag.

3) Make sure they’re touching the top back of their iPhone to your Phone Tag.

4) Additionally, in order to read your tag:  

• Their phone screen must be on.

• Their phone cannot be on airplane mode.

• Their flashlight cannot be on.

• Their camera cannot be open.

Your phone is reading its own tag because it's placed incorrectly on your phone.

Make sure to test the placement of your PhoneTag for this issue before you stick it on.

• For iPhone and most Androids, PhoneTag should be placed on the bottom back of your phone.

• For Samsung Galaxy and Note, PhoneTag should be placed on the top back of your phone.
