2. To get started:,, 

  1. Open the QR code scanner app or the camera app with built-in QR code scanning functionality on your smartphone or tablet.

  4. Most QR code scanners will automatically detect and scan the code without any manual input.
  5. Once the QR code is scanned, the application will process the information and take you to the linked content, such as a website, contact information, or other information stored in the QR code.
