How do QR codes work?

QR codes are a lot like barcodes, just more advanced. When you scan a QR code, your phone reads the unique pattern and displays the related information. That could be a website, sending a text or email, linking to a social network, or even connecting to your wifi.

No app required.

How do you scan a QR code?

Most phones have built-in software that lets you scan a QR code in a few quick steps. Simply open your phone camera, aim it at the QR code, and tap the banner that appears onscreen. If your phone doesn’t automatically scan the QR code, you may need to download the Google Lens app.

Why Flowcode?

Flowcode vs. Generic QR codes

Flowcodes aren’t your average black-and-white QR codes. They can be customized to fit your style preferences and even display your logo. Unlike most other QR codes, you can update your Flowcode's URL anytime. You won’t need to create and generate a new Flowcode; just update the link through your account. Flowcode also gives you unmatched data, giving you insights into who your audience is, how they engage with your brand, and how effective your marketing is.
