Default RFID/NFC question

Not sure if this is in the right spot, but i have a question about RFID/NFC tags. Would it be possible to copy and RFID tag, say that you would use to enter an apartment building, and copy it to your phone so you can use your phone to open the doors? this would be nice as i have a few different RFID tags i carry around and would like to just copy them into my phone and use it. Thanks in advance.

Personal opinion: no. How secure would you feel knowing anyone could just copy that card key/fob and enter a secured door? Closest thing to something like this would require a specific "secure" app built for your phone by the company who manufactures the keyless entry system(s) you're looking at. Examples of companies who make something like this: Viper - keyless entry to car via app, Kwikset - keyless entry to home via app.
I will not apologize for art.
