NFC stopped working

I normally do a weekly all apps update from Google Play Store for my Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus phone.

And due to working from home for the last 3 weeks, I have not used my phone's NFC for some time, so I did not realize what happened and when exactly that causes this.

When I went out of the house recently and use my NFC again, I realized no NFC reader can read or detect it. It  is not working for shop purchases and not in bus transport readers. There's no beep, nor message change, nor a red light from those readers to indicate my phone tried to send some signal but failed.

I checked the "Default NFC method" options in my NFC, it is put to "Auto Select". I changed it to "Android operating system". Same result, not working.

I don't remember about updating the software, but here is my information :

One UI version 3.1
Android version 11

Anyone know a fix?

Hey, @RocZi!

Is anything blocking the NFC connectors?

This could be anything including a case.

Thanks for your reply. Do you mean like a casing?

I have a casing, but i dont need to remove the casing at all for all my NFC usage all along. Nevertheless, I will remove it to try tomorrow. I take public transport daily now so I can test.

If it is a hardware failure, then i wouldn't know. Except keep trying.

I am guessing it is a software issue because I see a few have posted the same topic after updating phone software. Wondering if more people faces this.
