What is a QR Code?

A Quick Response Code (QR Code) is an image that can be read by a device's camera providing there is software to handle it.

If you are using an Android or non iOS 11 device, you will need a barcode/QR code scanning app in order to scan a QR code. Apple's iOS 11 camera app has native support for QR code scanning so there is no need to grab an additional app from the App Store.

Once you have an eligible device, simply point the camera towards the QR image when requested by your device. After a few short seconds, your device should react to the QR code and handle as necessary.
