The QR Code is now redirecting the user for one time to Google. If the QR Code is scanned again, the QR Code redirects to Microsoft.

Redirection Logic

When you create a one-time scannable QR Code you can select the redirection logic. You can choose between 3 different types.

Per first redirect

This option will just redirect any user to the default URL after the QR Code has been scanned for the first time.

Per IP

By selecting this option first, we look up if the QR Code has been scanned already from the user's IP address. If that is the case the user will be redirected to the default URL.

This option is setting a cookie on the user's device after the first scan. If the user scans the QR Code again and the cookie is found, the user is being redirected to the default URL. However, if the user deletes the cookie from his device and scans the QR Code again he is redirect to the URL like he scans the QR Code for the first time.
