I would like to scan a QR code with my phone, how do I do it?

I want to scan a QR code with my phone, but I’m not sure how to do it. I’ve heard that most smartphones can do this directly through the camera app, but I’m not entirely sure how to go about it. Also, I’m not sure if my phone supports this feature or if I need to download an additional app to scan the QR code. Can you explain to me how to scan a QR code easily and efficiently?

Hello. If you want to scan a QR code with your phone, it’s pretty simple. Most recent smartphones are equipped with this basic functionality. For iPhone users, simply open the camera app and point the camera at the QR code, a notification will automatically appear to allow you to open the associated link.

For Android users, the process is often similar, but some phones may require the use of Google Lens or a third-party app. If your device doesn’t do this automatically, there are plenty of free apps on the Play Store or App Store like QR Code Reader. Once you’ve installed the app, open it and point your camera at the QR code. That’s all there is to it!
