Use this guide to know how to deactivate your QR Code using the Scanova QR Code Generator tool.
Deactivating a QR Code is a feature of Dynamic QR Codes. It is not possible to deactivate a Static QR Code as it stores the data in the QR Code itself.
You can watch below the demo video on How to deactivate a QR Code:
To deactivate your QR Code, follow these steps:
1. Login to your Scanova account
2. Click on MY QR Codes on the left panel
3. From the list of saved QR Codes, go to the one you want to deactivate and click on View/Edit
4. Toggle the status button upon the image of the QR Code to deactivate your QR Code
Whenever the deactivated QR Code is scanned the users will see a landing page stating 'This QR Code has been deactivated'
Note: In case you want to reactivate the same QR Code then perform the same process (Toggle the status button upon the image of the deactivated QR Code to reactivate your QR Code)
Now, If you are to looking pre-set a deactivation time for QR codes, then you can use the Advanced Feature of Auto-Deactivate QR Code. This feature helps you to set a specific timeframe for the QR codes to remain active before they automatically expire. This functionality is particularly useful for scenarios where time-sensitive access is required or when you want to limit the exposure of your QR codes.
Note: You will need a Pro or Enterprise subscription to use this feature.
