secure QR code generator

The privacy-focused secure QR code generator allows you to generate a QR code just in your browser. Completely private and your QR codes are only known to you. No ads, no tracking.

Why use a privacy-focused QR code generator?

Sometimes you worry about platforms stealing your QR code. Maybe you have a sensitive URL and don’t want it to be exposed to the platform. Maybe a form or survey for research, and you want to keep it private from the platform. If you don't want someone to see this information from the QR code, it's not a good idea to use a standard QR code available online. Use BlockSurvey's free privacy-focused QR code generator. It allows you to create private QR codes so that only you can see your information.

Frequently asked questions

Do you collect any information from the QR code generated?

No. We do not collect any information. You are anonymous to the platform. The QR code generation takes place on the browser side and it is known only to you.

What are the permissions needed to scan the QR code on phone?

There is no need for special permissions to scan a QR code. By default, all modern phones support the scanning of QR codes from the camera. We advise not to use a third-party QR code app when it is already available with the default camera on phone.

What are the privacy issues surrounding QR codes?

There are a few potential privacy issues when it comes to QR codes. For example, if a QR code is used to access a website, the website may be able to track the user's IP address. The QR code owner has to communicate the privacy policy on what data is being tracked and what is not.

How to make QR code secure?

There is no foolproof method to make a QR code secure, but there are some methods that can make it more difficult for someone to tamper with the code. One method is to use a QR code that is printed on tamper-resistant material such as metal or plastic. Another method is to use a QR code that has been generated using a secure QR code generator.

What are some tips to secure the QR code?

However, some tips on how to make a QR code more secure include: Using a QR code generator that offers security features such as password protection and encryption on the destination URL. Storing the QR code in a secure location such as a password-protected file or database. Printing the QR code on tamper-resistant materials such as holographic labels.

How can I track the number of scans for my QR code?

If you want to track the number of scans for your QR code, you can use a QR code tracking service. There are a number of free and paid services available that will allow you to track the number of times your QR code has been scanned. We advocate not to track as it may invade privacy and many a times consent cannot be obtained digitally as QR code is primarily offline in nature.

What is a dynamic QR code? Do you support it.

A dynamic QR code is a QR code that can be changed after it has been generated. This means that the destination URL, or other data, can be updated without having to generate a new QR code. This can be useful if the data that is being encoded by the QR code needs to be updated frequently. BlockSurvey doesn’t support this feature.

Are dynamic QR codes more secure than static QR codes?

No, dynamic QR codes are not more secure than static QR codes. In fact, they may be less secure, as it is possible to change the destination URL without the user knowing.
