Use a NFC tag to unlock the phone RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm interested in learn how to develop a little bit for WP 8.1, I had C# in school, but since then (6 years ago)never touched a computer to write code again, so you can say I will have to start from scratch.

    So, my idea came from the NFC Ring... In Android it is possible to unlock your phone with it, so I thought: "Cool, maybe WP does the same!" NOPE, even if there is a NFC Ring app, doesn't do the only feature that most people with the ring wants, unlock the phone.

    My question before spending a lot of time trying to accomplish something that maybe can't be done:

    Is it possible to unlock the phone with a NFC tag?

    I'm quite sure that NFC stays in the background on my Lumia 930, sometimes it reads my work badge when I place both in the table, so this process of recognizing NFC tags can be done in the background, so I want to know if it will be possible to write an app that runs in the background to unlock the phone if a saved NFC tag is recognized.
