Why is my QR code not working?

By Michael Brannon

There are many reasons why a QR code is not working correctly.

  • First, check your entered data. Sometimes there are little typos in your URL that break your QR code.

  • Some QR codes (like vCard) contain a lot of data. Try reducing the data you entered for your QR code when possible. This can make it easier for QR code scanner apps to read your code.

  • Try to remove the logo in your QR code and check to see if this helps.

  • Also, ensure that there is enough contrast between the background and foreground of the QR code. The foreground should always be darker than the background.
