Why does my Huawei phone have a default "New Tag Collected" application invoked on every NFC scan by default?

Huawei phones have a default "New Tag Collected" application invoked on every NFC scan by default.

When you perform a scan for the first time, an application selector should appear. Select "Supersapiens" and tap "Always".

If you cannot see the application selector, perform the following steps on your Huawei phone to reset your choices.

  1. Open the "Settings" app
  2. Select "Apps"
  3. Tap "Apps" again
  4. Select three dots in the top right corner
  5. Select "Reset app preferences"
  6. Select "Reset"
