A QR Code can be scanned by the following devices:
- Mobile Phone/Smartphone: This is the most common device that is used to scan QR Codes. Bulk of your scans will come via this device
- Tablet: Note that a tablet (iPad, etc.) is also a mobile device and can be used to scan a QR Code
- PC: Our system can recognize that a QR Code has been scanned by a PC in the following two cases: If a QR Code is scanned using the webcam of a PC (e.g. WebQR) OR If the short URL encoded in a QR Code (such as https://scnv.io/ABCD) is opened directly in a web browser of a PC
- Bot: If a web crawler or bot decodes a QR Code by visiting the short URL, then our system recognises the device as a bot
All of these devices can show up in Analytics.
