Secure QR codes use simple but robust technology for anti-counterfeit packaging and documents

  • Secure QR codes are standard QR codes upgraded with a secure graphic that creates a new kind of anti-counterfeit packaging and document feature
  • Secure QR codes can be serialized (unique) or non-serialized QR codes (SKU/ product grouping level)
  • Works with most industrial printers using standard inks and substrates
  • Based on decades of technological research and discovery

Use Scantrust unique (serialized) QR codes as an additional layer of protection

  • Serialized QR codes afford you an additional layer of protection by using unique serial numbers for every code
  • Counterfeit detection algorithms use serialized QR code scan location, scan count, and the physical distance between scans
  • Serialization makes better, easier management of product blacklisting possible (manual, automated)
  • Reports and alerts use unique QR code serial numbers for more detailed, granular data
  • Also works with RFID, NFC
Scantrust counterfeit alert system offers monitoring with a map based and real-time data system

1. Secure QR codes printed directly on packaging or on labels

We can recommend a printing partner or you can print directly using your equipment and substrates
