You can use NFC for payments and take bus and more, on a NFC supported smartphone. However, whatever for which reasons you want to disable NFC function on your device, such as to prevent your phone from being used to make payments with Android Pay, to prevent your phone from being used to read NFC tags, and to conserve battery life, here are the full guides to disable the function on Android and iOS devices.
