We all wish VCARDs were supported NDEF records on iOS, but they aren’t.
We have to use a normal URL to download the contact card…
But does that mean we have to upload our user data to weird online business card providers? No!
I present to you: https://dngr.us/vcf.
- enter your info or select a VCARD
- generate the URL
- save the URL on your chip
That’s it, now everyone can download your contact when tapping your implant!
I think this is the only privacy friendly service to share your contact to iPhone users.
Basically this is a more user-friendly version of this:
We store the VCARD in the
hash of the URL which is never sent to the server.
For more details, please refer to the FAQ.
Firstly, this has not been tested extensively, so if you find bugs, and I guess you will, let me know. (Same for feature requests, improvements etc.). Especially on weird phones and browsers.
Secondly, this hasn’t been hardened yet, so it is is not as secure as it could be yet. But you can check the code, it’s all built to prevent people (including me) from accessing your VCARD data.
If you care: missing CSP, missing HSTS, uncertainty about TLS config
You may know (and can see) that my web dev skills are… less than good.
I would say this is usable, but I really would love to have it improved.
I don’t have the CSS skills needed, and I won’t ever learn how to do responsive websites properly, so it just will look bad on desktop for now.
This website is completely client side (js html css), just download the files if you wanna play around.
I would really appreciate all suggestions or even updates!
