What Are QR Codes?
Think of QR codes as superpowered barcodes. Made of unique black and white patterns and often presented in a square shape, QR codes can be scanned using the camera feature on mobile devices and are used by businesses and organizations to grow lists, instantly drive users to digital experiences, or as a shortcut to quickly reveal contact information.
Now that QR codes work seamlessly with native smartphone technology, they’ve become among the easiest and most convenient ways to drive mobile users to take action. And though QR codes became an essential communications tool during the pandemic, the desire for the convenience they provide in our mobile-first culture isn’t going anywhere.
