QR-Code Screenshots - can the code still be scanned?

Whether a QR-Code will work on screenshots depends on several factors. Below we consider some things that can affect the functionality of QR-Codes on screenshots:

  • Quality of the screenshot
  • A QR-Code must be scanned by a QR-Code scanner or a smartphone camera in order to decipher the information it contains. If the screenshot is not of sufficient quality, it may be difficult to recognize and decode the QR-Code.
  • Size of the QR-Code
  • QR-Codes are usually quite small and can therefore be difficult to recognize on a screenshot. If the QR-Code is too small on the screenshot, it may be difficult to scan it with a QR-Code scanner or a smartphone camera.
  • Functionality of the QR-Code scanner or smartphone camera
  • Not all QR-Code scanners and smartphone cameras are equally capable. Some are able to recognize and decode QR-Codes on screenshots better than others. If the QR-Code scanner or smartphone camera you are using is not powerful enough, it might be difficult to read the QR-Code.
  • Type of information in the QR-Code
  • A QR-Code can contain different types of information, such as text, links, or contact information. If the QR-Code on the screenshot contains links or contact information, it might be difficult to decipher this information because it is not displayed directly.
 

So, overall, there are many factors that can affect the functionality of QR-Codes on screenshots. However, it is usually more difficult to successfully scan and decode QR-Codes on screenshots. This is because the quality and size of the QR-Code on the screenshots are usually not optimal. However, if you take a high-quality screenshot with a large, highly visible QR-Code and use a powerful QR-Code scanner or smartphone camera, it should be possible without any problems.
