Secure QR codes are standard QR codes which have been upgraded with a security feature. If the QR code is copied, it can be detected as such by our scanning technology.
Any QR code can be made secure
By printing the secure graphic in the center and using Scantrust anti-counterfeiting technology, any QR code can be made into a secure gateway for information.
Instant product authentication with a smartphone
Authenticate any product with a Scantrust secure QR code using a mobile phone. Our algorithm detects if the QR code is an original or a copy. Learn about apps for authentication
Works with your existing printers and codes
Our secure QR codes are designed to work with many analog and digital printers, and if you already have QR codes, we can secure them.
How do Secure QR codes work?
Secure QR codes can be detected as faked or copied due to the loss of information that occurs when the QR code is scanned and re-printed on a counterfeit product or document. Scantrust scientists pioneered copy detection pattern technology and hold multiple patents which are the foundation of our Secure QR code.
How to add secure QR codes to products or documents

Equipment is calibrated and codes are activated
We rigorously test and calibrate the printing of secure QR codes on your printing equipment. Codes must be activated before use, and only these codes can be authenticated by end-users.
Inspector or customer scans to authenticate
