Understanding QR Codes

What’s a QR Code and how does it look like?
QR means Quick Response. It is a type of  two-dimensional barcode that can be read using smartphones and dedicated QR reading devices, that link directly to text, emails, websites, phone numbers and more!

Nowadays, you will be able to see them on the food that you buy to shopping bags in the mall. The scope of use for QR codes really is huge, particularly for the marketing and advertising of products, brands, services and anything else you can think of.

It looks like this; with small squares scattered but arranged in an orderly matter all over inside a big square.


How QR Code can be used?

1- Open the App store or Play store (depends on the device operating system, like iOS Android, windows, etc.) and search for any QR code readers.

2- Open the QR code reader application.

3- Point the camera at the QR code.

4- Scan the QR code.

5- The QR code will load and take you to the website directly.

When having your own QR code, it is better to have a larger one for a fast and easy scanning. However most of our devices can identify the QR codes without having to fix your camera position right directly onto the QR code.
