You might have already heard of “QR Code” o Quick Response Code mula sa mga iba’t ibang platforms na kayang i-support ang pag-iscan dito, o kaya naman ay na experience na ang paggamit dito—but what is it really?

A QR Code is a sort of barcode that encodes information as a sequence of pixels in a square-shaped grid and can be read simply by a digital device. Ang mga QR Codes ay unang nagamit at na-develop sa bansang Japan noong 1994 ng isang Japanese company na Denso Wave, a subsidiary of the automobile company Toyota Motor Corporation. Kahit na maliit at simple silang tignan, kaya nilang mag-store ng maraming data at kahit gaano kalaki man ang naka-store, agad-agad na mare-retrieve ito ng system. Kaya naman marami ang gumagamit nito, sobrang dali lamang gumawa ng sariling QR Code at napapabilis pa nito ang mga transaction.

Even though the original purpose ng mga QR Codes is to track vehicles while manufacturing them, nagagamit na rin ang mga ito sa mga marketing and advertising campaigns. They are used in the said field for directing customers to a specific page/website, sending a business numbers/addresses, sending an email or messages, para mag-download ng app, and for the customers’ shopping experience (paggamit sa mga codes para sa mga discounts at vouchers).

We can also use these codes for fast transaction payments. At para sa million-dollar question: is it safe to use? The answer is yes! Sinabi nga na mas safe sila gamitin kung wala ang card kaysa sa ibang method. The benefits of using QR Codes are:

  1. Fast/Instant Transactions- simply launch the QR code scanner app, scan the QR code, and confirm to complete the transaction. The payments are made in a matter of seconds.
  2. Simple Set-up- All you need is a smartphone with a camera and a QR code, which can be printed or scanned electronically.
  3. Solid Security- Any data sent via QR codes is encrypted, nasisigurado nito na ang mga payment ay safe.

In conclusion, hindi mo kailangan mag-worry if safe ba ang paggamit sa mga QR Code. Just remember na if mukhang shady ang pinaggalingan ng code, ‘wag na nating i-scan. You should of course only scan secured and verified codes from trusted places.
