QR Code

A two-dimensional barcode called a QR code, or quick response code, stores data in a pattern of black squares on a white square grid.

It may store several forms of data, including text, URLs, and contact details. When scanned with a smartphone camera or specialized QR code reader, the contained data is instantaneously accessible, making QR codes a popular and effective way to share site URLs, contact information, and more.
