Has anyone successfully read a passport?
Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using XDA App
With the aforementioned app, there's a separate section where you can input the bday, passport #, etc. which I think was necessary to get it to read the passport.
I tried filling it out with my own specific information. So I don't think you can directly read anyone's passport without this information punched in already. Regardless, it still didn't work, so not really a concern!
Also, wouldn't the information contained in the chip be similar to what you'd see if someone opened the passport?
When I last went through customs at an airport, I remember that the person at the desk first scanned the bottom of the passport with a red laser. This provides the passport number, birth date and passport expiry date. Those details are required to access the information stored in the NFC tag.
In NFC TagInfo, enter your birth date, passport number and passport expiry date in the menu. Once that's saved, tap your passport against your Nexus and make sure you hold it there until your information is displayed - this can take around 20 seconds.
It's pretty cool tapping your passport and then seeing your picture appear on your phone.
