Why a QR scanner?
QR codes help you easily access websites on your phone without having to enter lengthy URLs. They also mask the website you are asked to check out, and are therefore an easy way of directing unsuspecting users towards harmful content (scams, infected websites, phishing attempts, etc.).
The Avira QR scanner integrates our proprietary URL cloud technology, which scans all websites before you land on them for infected content. By combining our technology with a QR code reader, you can now take advantage of the ease and speed of QR codes, without the risk of landing on malicious websites.
