QR Codes

What is QR Codes?

QR codes, short for Quick Response codes, are two-dimensional barcodes that store information in a pattern of black squares arranged on a white background. Originally developed in Japan in 1994 by Denso Wave, QR codes have gained widespread popularity due to their ability to store large amounts of data compared to traditional barcodes. QR codes can contain various types of information, including URLs, text, contact information and even multimedia files.


QR codes are scanned using a smartphone or a QR code reader, which interprets the pattern and retrieves the stored data. They have found applications in various industries, including marketing, transportation, healthcare and ticketing. QR codes are particularly used for anti-counterfeiting in major industries.

The uniqueness and non-cloneability factor offered by the solution gives an advantage in preventing counterfeiting. QR codes offer convenience and efficiency by providing quick access to information with a simple scan, making them a versatile tool for businesses and consumers alike.
