On devices with iOS 8.0 or later versions of the operating system, you have to grant Kaspersky QR Scanner access to your device camera. You will receive a request for access to the camera when you try to scan a QR code for the first time. If you did not allow the app to access the camera after scanning the QR code for the first time, you can tap Home > Settings > Privacy > Camera and enable camera access for Kaspersky QR Scanner.

To scan a QR code:

  1. Point the camera at the QR code.
  2. Keep the device steady for 1-2 seconds.

Kaspersky QR Scanner automatically focuses the image and decrypts information encrypted in the QR code.

Depending on the type of information encrypted in the QR code, the device displays text, a link to a website, contact details, or Wi-Fi network connection settings.

Kaspersky QR Scanner saves all scanned QR codes into history if the saving history functionality is enabled in app's settings.

You can see up-to-date information about QR code contents check results in history by tapping required entry. The app checks the links again and shows up-to-date result.

  • If Kaspersky QR Scanner is unable to decode the QR code, move the camera to or from the QR to get the image in focus.
  • When illumination is insufficient, tap to turn on the flashlight.
