Scan a QR code or an NFC tag

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

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

When you scan an NFC tag, your device presents options for viewing or saving the information. You can view or save the information in the Smart Tags app. You might also be able to view the info in another application such as the BlackBerry Browser.

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