What is BrandSafer Q?

BrandSafer Q tag consists of a Secret QR and a 6-digit combination of random numbers and letters.

  • QR code on BrandSafer Q tag is called a ‘Secret QR’, which differs from other QR codes in that it uses highly sophisticated encryption algorithm to hide information needed for authentication. Counterfeiters cannot see the embedded information, but it is simple to decrypt using our BrandSafer Q mobile app on a smartphone.
  • By assigning each product a different combination of random numbers and letters, we effectively detect counterfeit attempts and prevent products from being forged multiple times.
  • App software can be used to display authenticated brand owner product information on a consumer’s mobile phone.
  • Registered distributors can authenticate without limits and their authentication records are managed separately from those of the consumer.
