Yes! Profyle works with all modern smartphones using either contactless NFC technology, or QR codes for phones without NFC support.
Please refer to our Compatibility List for more information.
All iPhones since the iPhone 7 (launched September 20016) support NFC. However, support does vary on how the NFC functionality is accessed.
Most Android phones since 2016 support NFC including Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy, Huawei P, Huawei Mi, One Plus, Motorola Moto, LG, Nokia, Sony Xperia and HTC.
All iPhones since the XR (launched September 2018) support background scanning, i.e. you don’t need to load any app or access any special settings to scan a card.
Ensure you have the latest iOS software (iOS 14+) and then you can easily activate the NFC reader from the Control Centre.
To enable the NFC Tag Reader in Control Center, go to Settings App -> Control Centre and add the “NFC Tag Reader”.
Open the Settings App and search for “NFC”. if your phone supports NFC, you should be presented with the option to switch your NFC feature on and off.
No. At this time, iPads do not support NFC. However, you can use the native camera app to scan QR codes.
The NFC reader is located on the top edge of the iPhone, so you will get the fastest card read by aiming the centre of the profyle card at the top back edge of an iPhone.
iPhones – the native camera app will recognise the profile QR code.
Android phones – phones running Android 8, 9 and 10 should have the “Google Lens” camera app installed which can scan QR codes. There are also many other camera apps that have this functionality.
Yes, any time you like! Change what details are shared by updating your contact and social details within your profylecard.com account at any time.

After tapping or scanning your profile card on their device, tap the contact details button at the top of the profile, then…
iPhones – Tap the “Share” icon in the top right, then select “Contacts” and press “Save”.
