Hello! This summer Toulouse-Blagnac airport that I use as a common place to departure abroad (I live in France) will conduct some NFC technology testing and I don't like it. Can I do something to avoid it during my time in the airport?

Hi Kira!

Indeed, this summer Toulouse-Blagnac airport will conduct testing of the new NFC (Near Field Communication) technologies inside their facility. Fifty travelers will be selected and they will take part in this experiment. If you own the BlackBerry smartphone you have a chance of becoming one of those fifty persons.

NFC technology of BlackBerry smartphones will be used from the first arrival of the experiment participators. Their smartphones will become some sort of wireless keys to many things and locations like premium departures area, car park, private lounge area, and so on. There will be also many additional information available through the NFC connection: real-time flight information, vehicle location in the car park, etc.

As long as this technology is based on hardware solutions, this system will identify you and know your location and recent activity even if your BlackBerry is turned off. So if you don't want the system to track you then the only thing you can do is to block the NFC signal in Toulouse-Blagnac airport and prevent NFC frequency from spotting your BlackBerry in the building.
