How do I scan a QR code?


QR codes can be scanned by the camera app on most smartphones. However, a QR code reader app may need to be downloaded on older smartphone models and mobile devices.

  • Open the camera app on your device.
  • Aim your camera at a QR code as if you are about to take a picture.
  • A notification will appear to ask if you would like to open the linked website.
  • Tap the notification to open the link.

If you are having trouble scanning a code with your camera, try downloading a QR code reader app from the App Store (Apple) or Google Play Store (Android).
