VCF - vCard File

What is a VCF file

VCF is a standard file format for electronic business cards which are quite often attached to e-mails. However, these days there are a lot of other ways available through which these electronic business cards can be exchanged, such as instant messaging. Information such as name, address information, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, URLs, photographs, audio clips, as well as logos can be contained in these files.

VCF files are basically used for exporting or importing contacts from address books through various platforms. These files can be attached to e-mails that provide the recipient with a convenient way to import the sender’s contact information.

Here's a small, but not exhaustive list of programs that can open VCF documents:

  • Microsoft Windows Contacts
  • Palm Desktop
  • QUALCOMM Eudora
  • Microsoft Outlook 2013
  • vCard Organizer
  • Nokia PC Suite
