What is a Barcode?
A barcode represents data in a visual form, also referred to as linear or one dimensional. Using a specialised device called a barcode scanner, one can scan these codes and extra their data. It is now also possible to scan barcodes using a modern smartphone by simply downloading an app.
Where are Barcodes used?
Barcodes are found in plenty of places, such as on an item from your local shop or supermarket. The cashier will scan the barcode on the product to know how much to charge you. They are also found in other places like warehouses to track products as they move from A to B.
What's the purpose of a Barcode Generator?
Our barcode generator aims to assist you whether you are testing a barcode reader or developing software. It's completely free to use and runs locally within your browser.
Do you store my barcodes?
Any barcodes generated from our barcode generator are generated completely client side. This means that any data you enter does not reach a server or travel via any third party where this can be logged. In fact, it'll still work even if you disconnect from the Internet!
