What are Secure QR codes?

Secure QR codes are “upgraded” QR codes


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.

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.
