1. Step – Registration

Before you can create a profile for your piece of luggage - bag, suitcase, backpack, etc. - you must first activate your Bagtap and register. To do this, activate the NFC function of your smartphone and then hold it to your Bagtap. Depending on the smartphone model, the NFC chip is integrated in different places. If your smartphone is not NFC-enabled, you can alternatively scan the QR code of the Bagtap.

The scan will automatically take you to the tap21 web portal, where you will be asked to register. In the registration process, you will be asked to enter your e-mail address and to think of a password that is as secure as possible. Afterwards, you will receive an activation link to the email address you entered. Please click on this link. Now your account is activated and you can log in to

  • Wie kann ich meinen Bagtap zurücksetzen?

    Du möchtest Deinen Bagtap zurücksetzen, um ihn neu zu verknüpfen oder einem anderen Account zuzuordnen? Das Zurücksetzen ist nur über den Support möglich, damit die Taps nicht aus Versehen gelöscht werden. Jedem Bagtap ist ein individueller Link zugeordnet, der ihn identifiziert.

    Diesen Link findest du in der Browserleiste und er sieht etwa so aus:
    Sehen kannst du ihn, wenn du deinen Bagtap direkt scannst oder dich in Deinem Account einloggst. Du wählst den gewünschten Bagtap aus und gelangst zum neuen Fenster mit dem dazugehörigen Profil. Bist du einmal im Profil, siehst du den individuellen Link in der Browserleiste.

  • How do I scan my bagtap correctly to be able to read the data stored on it?

    There are two ways to read the data of your Bagtap with your smartphone or tablet: Via NFC or using the QR code. If you want to use NFC, you have to activate NFC in your smartphone and know how to scan an NFC tag with your mobile phone. Then you must know that scanning NFC tags like our bagtap works depending on the operating system of your phone or bagtap. For example, smartphones with iOS usually require an app to scan NFC tags. Check here for a detailed overview of the differences. For iOS11 we offer you our free NFC-Reader App in the Appstore. You can download them under this link. Now you can scan your bagtap by touching it with the back of your smartphone. You will now be automatically redirected to a preview of your Tap21 baggage profile.

    Alternatively you can scan the QR code shown on the bagtap. For this you need an app which can read QR codes. You will then be directed to a preview of your Tap21 baggage profile.

  • My Bagtap does not appear after the registration under the button "My Taps"

    The first touch with your smartphone will lead you to the registration on Tap21. After you have registered, you have to hold the Bagtap baggage tag to the smartphone again. Now your Bagtap should be visible under the menu item "My Taps".
