About five weeks ago, I published a post titled, “FBI Announces: Beware of QR Codes.” Prompted by the FBI announcement, the post raised awareness to ways QR codes are being used by bad actors to steal our data and defraud us.
SUPER BOWL COMMERCIAL–QR CODE MAKES AN APPEARANCE
For those of you that watched the United States Super Bowl on February 13th, you may have been surprised (as I was) when–during a commercial break–dancing across the screen appeared a QR code we were encouraged to take a photograph of with our smartphone.
Although the QR code led to a legitimate site, an Inc.com article highlighted the FBI’s warning and concerns about QR codes.
Here is a quote from the article:
“QR codes are appearing everywhere—even in Super Bowl ads—but consumers and business owners should know that there are risks.”
It is worth a read.
