A QR-Code (Quick Response Code) is a two-dimensional barcode that can be read using a smartphone camera or a QR-Code scanner. The QR-Code contains information in its black and white fields that can be read by a QR-Code reader program.
Once the QR-Code is successfully read, the QR-Code reader app will decode and display the information it contains. This information can be, for example, a text, a link to a website or a contact information.
Typically, QR-Codes are used on posters, flyers or in magazines to provide users with additional information quickly and easily. However, they can also be placed on product packaging, tickets or in museums.
There are also QR-Codes that are used to access protected areas, such as closed events or special areas in museums. In such cases, the QR-Code must be activated before it can be scanned.
Overall, QR-Codes provide a quick and convenient way to obtain additional information or gain access to protected areas. All you need is a smartphone with a camera or a QR-Code scanner and a QR-Code.
