Why this app is safe to use:

Is your Android device pre-installed with a QR code / barcode reader? Does it keep your privacy safe?

Please open the app settings of your device or open the Play store, and try comparing the number of permissions required by this app and other similar apps. You will realize that most of other scanner apps require a lot of permissions like:

- find accounts on the device
- read your contacts
- read the contents of your shared storage
- access precise location

This shows that such apps have free access to your private information. Your friends info or personal pics may be sent out secretly. Why is location necessary for scanning QR codes? Although it does not necessarily mean those apps are stealing your data, it is not very comfortable to keep using them.

Green QR was created initially to take away such concerns from the developer himself. It only requires the permissions of "camera" for scanning and "network access" for ads. Network access is used solely for displaying ads. This app never transfers scanned data anywhere.

* QR Code is a registered trademark of DENSO WAVE INCORPORATED for a type of matrix barcode.

This app has the following limitations:

- Unable to scan QR codes with inverted colors. (Inverted codes in an image may be scanned.)
- Unable to scan multiple QR codes / barcodes at the same time.
