I was in and out of apps as I usually do, logged into my PayPal by mistake so closed it and pressed my Halifax but every time I pressed it nothing happened. Went on a few different apps and also did the same. I managed to get on my Halifax by uninstaling and adding again but it's done it again. Please help is my phone compromised because is seems to be apps with extra security or am I being paranoid 

 

EDIT...... if you go to Google play and uninstall webview it should sort itself out. Worked for me 🙂

I have the same issue. I am so disappointed. I have cleared cashe and storage. It did not help. I have uninstalled then reinstalled the apps. Still there same.  These apps are working find on 2 Android phones I had. I thought upgrading to Samsung is a good idea. It was a big mistake. You pay more than 1K for a phone and then it's so bad.

Hi, 

I have just purchased the awesome S21 Ultra with the official flip cover (with S pen).

All is great with the phone, but I am having some difficulty with the NFC support.  

I have setup Samsung Pay, and it works fine. I need to open the flip and scan my fingerprint, as expected.

I also play golf (don't judge me!), and I have NFC tags attached to my clubs to use GPS and do all sorts of distance things. I have to open the flip after each shot and unlock the phone to be able to tap the appropriate club on the NFC to register a stroke.

I had this same problem with my previous S9. I would like to be able to just touch the club without opening the phone.  BTW, the App I use has a function to "pin" it to the screen so it can't be accidently closed or disturbed whilst the phone is in the pocket.

The app describes the ability to just touch the club against you pocket, but I can't find a way to allow the NFC to fire without opening the phone.

Any keen golfers out there who might have a fix to the same issue?

Not reading, or executing nfc tags whilst the phone is locked is a security feature. Nfc tags can hold all sorts of data, some can be malicious, and therefore tapping peoples phones with a malicious nfc tag would be a dangerous injection flaw.
