Does anyone actually use QR codes?

Even though many smartphones users aren’t scanning every QR code they come across, there are still numerous opportunities for businesses to embrace this technology and reach a wider audience of new customers.

Is QR code safe?

Are QR Codes secure? The short answer is yes, QR Codes are secure. Static QR Codes are machine-readable and the content inside them cannot be changed once generated. The content inside a Dynamic QR Code, however, can be changed, but you would need access to the user account that created them in the first place.

Do QR codes expire?

QR Codes do not expire. If the information linked to the QR Code is outdated, the website or landing page will not show the content. If a static QR Code expires, it won’t work – meaning, it won’t direct you to a landing webpage, basically stalling the purpose of the QR Code.

Why QR Codes are bad?
