7 Things You Must Know Before Scanning a QR Code

  1. QR codes can contain links to malicious websites, so be cautious and only scan codes from trusted sources.
  2. Make sure your phone is up to date with the latest security updates and has a reliable antivirus app installed.
  3. Before scanning, check the source of the QR code to make sure it’s legitimate and not a fake code created by a scammer.
  4. If the code appears to be damaged or altered in any way, don’t scan it.
  5. Make sure you have a good internet connection when scanning the code, as a poor connection could lead to an error or a delay in loading the content.
  6. Always pay attention to the permissions requested by the app or website you are redirected to after scanning the code, and only grant necessary permissions.
  7. Be aware of the information you are sharing, as scanning a QR code may give access to your camera, location, or other personal information.
