How to redirect your Tap Tag to a new website, and un-redirect - Tap Tag

How to redirect your Tap Tag remotely from your Mytt.ag Dashboard

Your Tap Tag comes default with a mytt.ag profile already installed onto it. This profile allows you to easily create a downloadable contact vcard, a digital web-based profile, and it comes with a dashboard to manage both. 

However, you have the ability to bypass mytt.ag and instead redirect to any website of your choosing.

For example, if you don't want to show your profile and instead want your Tap Tag to send people directly to your Instagram, you can do so from your dashboard. The redirect tool is also popular in case you prefer a more advanced digital profile like those of Linktree, hihello, or beacons.ai which are all significantly more customizable.

Using this redirect tool will update BOTH the NFC tap-to-share and the QR code in realtime. This is different than reprogramming the card because a reprogram will overwrite the mytt.ag software which severes the connection between NFC and QR. 

Steps to redirect your Tap Tag 

There are two opportunities to redirect your profile (attached below)

1) When you first receive your Tap Tag, you are presented with your signup screen to input all of your profile info. If you choose, you can add your redirect here. The only info required is username/password and first/last name, the rest can be left blank

OR'

1) If you have already made your profile in the past you can sign into your dashboard then click the "Edit Profile" button which brings you back to the edit form, this is essentially the same exact form you saw when first signing up

2) Once you have the edit form pulled up, you may paste your URL you wish to direct to. Be sure to include the full website link including https://

Once your links is there be sure to "Enable" to turn on the redirect. This will now override your profile and send someone who taps your NFC item, or anyone that clicks your link, to your chosen website.

 

It is important to note that your mytt.ag will not change. This is unchangeable using this redirect method. What changes is what happens when you click the link.

 

Once you have a website URL pasted into the text box, you can now toggle ON/OFF the redirect easily from the dashboard. Turning off sends the link back to your Tap Tag profile.
