The QR codes are a simple and direct way to open links in our smartphone or tablet, without have to write the complex links of some pages. However, when we read one of these QR codes we never know where link is leading us, which leads us to be exposed to various types of online threats.
Knowing this the computer security company Kaspersky Lab decided to create a new application to read QR codes, so that the user see minimized the risk of malicious access to a website.
Using this application it’s also very simple, very similar to any other QR code reading appp: open the application and point our smartphone to the code we want to read. Then the diference between this app and a normal QR code reader, it’s that the Kaspersky QR Scanner will analyse the link on the code and, if there is no danger, it will show us a preview of the web page so that we can open it in our browser.
But the Kaspersky QR Scanner won’t just protect us from QR codes with links to we pages. Besides that, this application will also protect us from the QR cides that are use to connect to Wi-Fi networks and even QR codes with informations about contacts.
While more and more are experiencing a rise in insecurity on the Internet and on links between mobile devices, this applications will certainly be an excellent addition to your device.
