What is a QR code?

A Quick Response (QR) code is a 2D barcode that can store and display information. A QR code can be used to:

  • connect to a website
  • make a phone call, send a text or email
  • download contact information to your phone
  • add an event to your calendar

QR codes are readable by QR scanners as well as smartphones, which have a QR reader installed.

 

How to use QR codes

To use a QR code you will need to load a QR code reader on your phone or mobile device.

There are many different QR code readers. To find one, search for "qr code reader" in your smartphone app store, or do an internet search for "qr code reader" plus details of your phone model.


Next, open the QR code reader on your phone and point your phone's camera at the code. Your phone will then read the code and add the coded information to your phone (if it's contact information), or navigate to the site (if the code is for a web address).
