QR codes remain a cool way of sharing information and nowadays they are starting to become visible in all kinds of places. These QR codes often include Web links that automatically takes you to the Website when scanned.
However, since QR codes are becoming more and more prevalent, it advices that you check the QR codes before permitting the browser to load these unknown links.
Symantec has launched QR code scanner to address QR code-based malwares. This scanner will check all links before loading these web links in your browser. When you scan a QR code using Norton Snap (Android & iOS), it will first check that link and then it will provide you a clear safety score. Simply hit on the full web link address if you would still like to continue loading that link. Moreover, you can tap on safety rating box for more details.
Norton Snap is free to use and currently available in beta. There is no word as yet if Symantec plans on charging for it in future or include a premium suite.
