Why is PiQR the best QR code generator for printed QR codes?

Normal QR codes linking to any protected website can be generated by anyone. It doesn't pose much risk, until such QR code is printed on a physical (fake) product, where it mis-leads the consumer into thinking it is a legitimate product. With PiQR, authentication of Secure QR codes enables anyone to confirm the authenticity of the QR code and product itself. With PiQR, products, consumers and companies are protected against fraud and counterfeiting.

What can be put behind PiQR codes?

Short answer is: anything you would put behind a normal QR codes. PiQR is optimised to protect QR codes that are printed on the product or packaging. Authentication of QR codes doesn't work when shared as online pictur, or big billboards.

Can anyone use PiQR? 

Yes, we only need to confirm you have the right to protect the IP that you are about to protect.

When can you start working for me?

After we confirm the paperwork, it's matter of minutes.

Are there any limitations for the Secure QR codes production?

Secure QR code to be secure, need to be printed on calibrated printing machine and substrate. The material that it's printed on should be smooth - paper, foils, metal etc.
Materials like wood or corrugated or overly fibrous paper are not suitable, but always subject to calibration.
Secure QR codes are 12x12mm and should be printed on flat surface. Bigger QR codes can't be secured.
To ensure the security - the printing resolution, stability of printing and preparation of printing data need to be robust. Therefore the process is not suited for home or office printing environments where the security factors can't be controlled.

Can any Packaging provider print Secure QR codes?

Generally yes, we have an always growing network of PiQR certified packaging producers around the world. IF your existing provider is not yet certified, they can approach us with certification request.

Will PiQR solve all my issues with Fake products?

Unfortunately not. PiQR is a technology "building block" that protects your physical products and enables users authentication of the products in physical world, anywhere and anytime with just their smartphone.
It is like seatbelts in the car - a crucial technology feature, but there are other traffic rules and procedures that need to be respected to improve safety on the roads. For more, you can read our 6-step Guide here
