Scan a QR Code, barcode, or an NFC tag

The NFC feature might not be available, depending on your service provider, your administrator's settings, and your BlackBerry device model.

When you scan a QR Code or barcode by using the Smart Tags app, your device saves the information as a smart tag.

When you scan an NFC tag, your device opens the information in the corresponding application type. You can save the information as a smart tag by opening the Smart Tags app before you scan the NFC tag.

Do any of the following:
  • To scan a QR Code or barcode, open the Smart Tags app. Tap The Scan icon. Tap The Scan icon or The Scan Barcode icon. Hold your device so that all four corners of the QR Code or barcode appear on your screen.
  • To scan an NFC tag, tap the back of your device against the NFC tag.
