QR code phishing, also known as ‘Quishing’, is a cyberattack that uses QR codes to deceive individuals and steal sensitive information.
Cyber-criminals distribute QR codes through various channels, such as emails, SMS messages, social media, or physical printouts.

On the fake website, victims are prompted to enter sensitive information or download malicious files.
To protect yourself from QR code phishing, verify the source, inspect the URL, use a secure QR code scanner, enable two-factor authentication, keep your device secure, educate yourself about phishing tactics, and report suspicious activity.
Stay vigilant and exercise caution when scanning QR codes to protect your personal and financial information.
