QR codes have been around for a long time. But with everyone trying to limit contact, today they’re nearly everywhere and that’s leading to a rise in fraud and risk.
I had an “ah-ha” moment about the explosion of QR codes the other day when I took my family on our annual ‘pay money to wander and get lost in a corn maze for hours adventure’. It all started when a friend shared a QR coupon code for my favorite corn maze with me via social media. Knowing the maze is limiting the number of people and time slots this year, I quickly scanned the code and purchased my tickets, which were then sent to me in the form of a yet another QR code ticket.
