How does QR decoding work?

When the program detects that the image contains a QR code, it decodes the image and identifies the text, which is displayed below in a "Message" box.

In the case of web page addresses (URLs), the program will show you the URL and give you the option to click on the link for you to visit if you feel it is necessary, although we recommend that you proceed with caution when the target web page does not offer much confidence or security.

You can either browse a QR code image locally from your device or go for a QR code image from a URL.

  • Possibly you are too far away from the code and it is necessary to focus it well.
  • Clean the camera of your cell phone, it may be fogged or with some stain.
  • Make sure that the phone is at 90 degrees, because if it is tilted too much it will be more difficult to decode the code.
