• Identify safe websites. Blocks malicious sites before they load on your mobile device.

• Quickly and easily share cool sites and promotions with your friends.
• Tell at a glance whether a site is safe, potentially dangerous, or should be avoided completely.
WHAT ARE QR CODES?
QR codes are everywhere—in magazines, on billboards, posters, and more. They make it easy to get information about products or services and to take advantage of incentives and special deals. They can also make it easy for bad guys to attack your mobile device, steal your identity, and mess with your stuff. The problem is, a QR code is a website in disguise and you can’t tell if it’s safe until after you scan it. And then it’s too late.
Norton™ Snap keeps you a step ahead of potential threats and takes the gamble out of using QR codes. It’s the first QR code scanner that protects you, your identity, and your stuff from online threats by checking the safety of websites linked to QR codes before they load on your mobile device.
When you scan a QR code, Norton Snap checks Norton Safe Web for the website’s safety rating. It lets you visit trusted sites immediately and blocks dangerous and suspicious sites before threats can be downloaded to your mobile device. A Norton Rating icon shows you if a site is safe or not. Pressing the icon takes you to the full Norton Safe Web site where you can get additional information, including a list of the threats detected and the complete, expanded website address, so you can see where the link really goes before you click it. Norton Snap also lets you send a quick message to friends, so you can share cool sites and promotions with them.

What's New in Version 1.6.21
Minor code enhancements
zero control over when to 'snap'
Another example of some developer doing something 'cool' for its own sake instead of THINKING about how people will use it. If there are 2 QR codes near each other there is NO way to choose which one gets 'snapped'... it just grabs one as soon as it recognizes it. It SHOULD allow you to frame the one you want THEN click a 'snap' button, but instead it just auto-snaps as soon as it sees any QR ... so you end up with the wrong one.
Great little app!
Does more than just read the QR code-tells you if it's safe, let's you see what else you've looked up, and let's you share the website. Love it.
Will take you to the site after it checks to see if it ok to do so! Safe surfing!
