Using your contact details for a QR code is limitless – for possessions or people, for boxes or goods of any shape or size. The question is how much do you want the person that scans your QR code to know about you? The answer is to make a number of QRs using different information, such as just your email address, mobile number, website URL or your home number. If it is a ContactQR for people you trust you can let them scan your full details to save instantly to their phone – no missed numbers ever
Let’s start with the basic sequence
It couldn’t be easier! But let’s look at this again with a little more detail..
Once saved in photos, your QR can be displayed in seconds to be scanned and saved by another smartphone or device. The brightness on your device may need to be reduced to help with the scan. The same method can be followed for your other contact details and saved in photos on your smartphone or device. Once the process has been completed, you have all the ContactQRs you need for instant scanning by other devices. No more tapping in numbers and getting it wrong – be smart with ContactQRs
You might need help in saving your QR to its own photo album on an iPhone or iPad so here is a useful guide to smooth your path – other devices will have similar steps to follow. Whatever details you enter to create your QR codes will be shown on the receiving device. On this occasion a website URL is used and can be opened directly on the receiving device. Other details work in exactly the same way.
