What are QR codes?
QR Code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode that has become popular due to its fast readability and large storage capacity.
The code consists of black modules (square dots) arranged in a square image pattern on a white background.
QR Codes are typically images placed on printed materials or at locations. They are scanned by cell phones and tablets which will open “links”.
