Abstract: Quick Response (QR) Codes are tiny compatible printed pattern on solid surface to transfer a data from a printed medium to a digital medium. The coding information cannot be viewed by the naked eye thus the manipulation of printed pattern is very difficult. In general, QR code is printed in the two-dimension using white and block named QR code modules or data pixels. Static and Dynamic QR codes are available now a days. More than 3000 characters can be encoded over a very tiny space using QR graphics. The data are encoded by QR generator using ISO/IEC 18004:2006. Various types of data can be restored using QR codes and every QR Code contains segment devoted to informing the reader what sort of data it holds and used for coding and decoding the data easily. The most common data types of QR codes are SMS, Email address, phone number, plain text, geo location etc. Nowadays the QR codes are used in various fields. For example, it is used in the marketing and industries to provide the information about the products. In education it is used to register the information about the students in their certificates and to access the information in a website.
