QR codes, a short form of quick response codes is a new kind of bar code that has become very popular over the years. This is a two dimensional bar code that is used to store different kinds of information in encoded form. To view the information that is contained in a QR code, one needs to have a QR code scanner, to allow the scanning and decoding of the information carried by the QR code.
QR codes were first invented in the 1990s. Back in those days, QR codes were only used for one purpose. With the passing of the years, people have found more than one way that they can make use of QR codes, and this is the reason why QR codes have become as popular as they are today. QR codes are mostly used by business owners, but this does not mean that any other person cannot use QR codes. Most business owners use QR codes to save information that is of importance to their customers. Business owners save their contact details, email addresses, website links and a list of other information that they think can be relevant to their customers. Once the customers scan and decode the quick response codes, the information that is contained in that QR code is automatically saved in the smartphone that was used to scan it.
