With the ReadID NFC app you can read the NFC chip that is in your passport or identity card, using the NFC capability of your iPhone (iPhone 7 or later). This app is based on ReadID, a mobile identity document verification technology. It can read and verify the authenticity of identity documents that have a chip, which includes most passports and many identity cards. Before being able to read the chip, the app first needs to scan the so-called Machine Readable Zone of the identity document since this contains the password needed to get access to the chip. This app works client-only, meaning that the personal data from your identity document does not leave your phone.
Doesn’t work….at all.
Scanned the image of my passport fine. I followed directions and even used another app to ensure my NFC reader is active on my phone. Running iOS 16.6 - iPhone 13 mini. Have yet to have it read once. Even removed the case on my phone, thinking that had something to do with it. Nada. Zip. UPDATE - I actually read that someone said to slowly move the phone around. This did work after the third try. So, now it seems I can get it to scan sporadically. But thats something!

After Scanning It Resets
Right after scanning when you press Next it resets the whole thing. Can't look at the information for more than a few seconds. 2/5 at most
This app a big joke
If you looking for a good MFC Reader/Writer look elsewhere. This App is a big joke.
More people need to know about this app!
I washed my passport right before a trip to Cabo and the closest appointment to get a new passport would have been an 8hr drive. Thank god I found this app, I used it and the moment of truth was today as I checked in and everything worked! 🙌🏼
It works but had to doing it horizontally during scanning my passport. I wish there was function to copy and paste the data.
Follow the instructions, even though they were written by somebody who is not as articulate as they should’ve been, and this application does not work.
Small fix to instructions for scanning your document.
