What is a QR Code?
Short for 'Quick Response Code', a QR Code is a two-dimensional barcode that can be read by an imaging device such as a Smartphone camera.
Why does Trades Wallet use 'QR Codes'?
In an era where almost everyone has access to a mobile device, the use of 'QR Codes' eliminates the need for Wallet holders to remember yet another 'Username/Password'.
Instead, a quick scan of a 'QR Code' will enable a Wallet holder to access their personal Trades Wallet profile via the mobile 'Self Service' app.
How to use 'QR Code(s)' to access mobile apps
Self Service App
Wallet holders will scan their personalized 'QR Code' to 'Sign In' to the mobile 'Self Service' application in order to manage the contents of their Trades Wallet.

Field Scanner App
'QR Code(s)' are assigned to each Wallet created, but also to each administrator account. A Worksite administrator can use their own 'QR Code', in lieu of their username and password, in order to 'Sign In' to the mobile 'Field Scanner' app.
