Get message "Couldn't read NFC tag" every 2 seconds when mobile is in wallet near credit cards.

If mobile is moved more than a couple of inches away the message does not appear.

How can I stop this seriously annoying message ?

Thanks

Keep your cards in an RFI sleeve or turn off NFC

I have the same issues, after updating my Galaxy Note 10, the NFC didnt work and the original S View Cover didnt work either. Before update, I didnt have such problems. I tried to google in the problems and tried some solutions suggested, STILL didnt work and always says "Couldn't read NFC tag". 

Please help.

I obtained some "EMF Protection Fabric" (through amazon).

Cut two suitably sized pieces and placed them in the wallet above and below the Galaxy S21.

I suspect a pieces placed between any credit cards and the mobile will work just as well.
