Haha nice trick

I always read reveiws before downloading stuff and guess what, I AINT PAYING FOR THIS, I need to scan a QR for school because of
Corona and I’m not happy with QRBarcodeScanner, guaranteed you read these reviews and ignored them because you want money, but, I hope you know this is ridiculous because I’m not gonna pay 💰 for a QR scanner, that’s ridiculous, I might as well use a TikTok QR scanner. AND THATS NOT EVEN AN APP FOR SCANNING QR CODES, I JUST DONT GET IT, WHY DO YOU NEED TO DO THAT
I’m not trying to disrespect y’all but I’m annoyed, so I’m done.

Part 2. Hey listen I am so sorry for the disrespect and I know that you tried your best, and I know that you worked hard because if you didn’t it wouldn’t cost this much. But thx


Complete Rip off and now 40$ I’ll never see again.

All for nothing. QRBarcodeScanner doesn’t even work. Tried scanning several times. I’m convinced this is a scam. My friend bought lottery tickets for us. My first time ever. Went with this assuming it would be an easy app, simple enough, but yet it did nothing. Couldn’t read either of the two tickets. Tried the next day same thing. It’s unfortunate you advertise a service, then service doesn’t work, and yet you are still emptying peoples pockets. Especially in the times we are living in.


No customer service at all!

I have been reaching out to them for weeks now, they overcharged me and are just ignoring me now. Do not download! I never approved the payment and the only reason I noticed is because the bank called me for a suspicious transaction. Since then they have been basically non responsive. And now an actual information on the product...the reader takes a while to scan. There are free options out there. Do not use this one! Basically those people are thieves!


Awful Experience

I downloaded QRBarcodeScanner to test it out and then immediately deleted it from my phone. A week later I got a $43 charge. It turns out QRBarcodeScanner charges you wether or not you use it and simply just for downloading it. Keep in mind that nowhere in QRBarcodeScanner itself is there a warning if being charged or are you required to enter card information, etc. The charge was automatically taken from my debit card stored in my apple wallet. Wether it’s intended or not, this feels incredibly shady to me.


Bypass the money question

It will ask you to do 3 days free and then pay, that is just for the pro version, this one is free with ads just close out that question by clicking the x I think that’s what I did? It works very quickly but gave it 3 stars for making it seem like this was something you had to pay for :/ shady....


Lens Crafter SoCo

I was worried about my prescription sunglasses. The lens fell out and the screw is missing. I walked right in when they opened and the Dr. welcomed me and Nicole was so helpful! She fixed my sunglasses in no time, now I can enjoy the holiday weekend!!


STUCK with A Bill

I don’t recommend QRBarcodeScanner, it doesn’t work and they charge you $50 or more for this scanner. I tried to get in touch with them and I can’t get in touch with anyone . They offer a 3 day trail that’s were they got me, thought I would remember to Cancel or it would cancel automatically now I’m stuck with a bill I don’t need being on disability on a small budget 😞Oh Well don’t say I didn’t warm you.


Refund requested for unintended auto annual subscription

I had requested for refund of unintended annual subscription which was charged without my knowledge. I requested refund couple of weeks back but no one responded yet from the company. I just downloaded QRBarcodeScanner for trial only purposes but the company renewed subscription for an year without my knowledge. Please refund my amount at the earliest as I am not using your app any more and wanted trial only.


Terrible scam

When you download an app that says free you expect to be able to use it - you know - without paying money. Even if there are features locked behind a paywall you still get to do something. Not here! You can’t use any part of QRBarcodeScanner without having a 3 day free trial and if you don’t cancel it, you will be charged $40 for an annual subscription. Stay Away


Great service

Everything is easier now!



They trick you into getting 3 day free trial then slip in a 39 dollar charge I wanted to contact them to let them know I didn’t want to pay for QRBarcodeScanner it wouldn’t except my email I also wanted to write a review it also won’t work inside of their app what a joke I did figure out how to unsubscribe inside my settings on my phone though also I went to apple App Store to write my review


Felicia Henderson

I just wanted to say thank you Felicia for all your help and kindness.

Ariel little 😍

It’s help you know what you’re looking up so you don’t have to text is it😍🥰🤪


Scam opportunity

Immediately after registering my payment for QRBarcodeScanner (following the free trial), but phone blew up with fraudulent charges from the same credit card that my apple payments go through. Nothing else changed or was done. Makes it hard not to suspect someone at this this company of using my card info.


Be Careful

I was just charged 42$ for a year subscription when I did not agree to this. I downloaded the free trial to see if it would work for what I needed. I never agreed to a monthly subscription. I canceled the subscription and was still charged. Can you please refund me my money and review your policy because you are scamming too many people. Thank you


Easy and fast

I get confused a lot on technology but this was fast easy


Bad news

Ridiculous UI - I’ve seen several people accidentally sign up and get charged the $44 I will never use QRBarcodeScanner can use it when I downloaded it and will never use it again. You should provide refunds for people for up to 5 to 7 business days after they figure out what they’ve done


QR Great

Great program/ fast easy access to products on line . Thank you


Charged without wanting it.

I was in a restaurant and it required a qr reader .I used this program once on the first day of the trial period, I did not understand that you automatically get charged for a year subscription. I would like a refund because I will never use it .


You cannot remove after canceling

This is a deceptive, cursed, app. AVOID trying it.
I tried their 3 day “free” offer, and finally found the instructions how to cancel the subscription, HOWEVER!!!, their app remains in your subscription list, after canceling, and the subscription listing lacks the required “remove” button. Instead there are only buttons to RE-subscribe, allowing them to bill you again, and making you have to go through the pain of recovery of your money through Apple (see their response to another bad review).

Very tricky app.


Be careful

It is a free download with a free trial. But be careful, they will charge you a yearly subscription without proper notification. I am fine with the subscription but I used QRBarcodeScanner for all of 5 seconds once I realized it required a subscription. There was no PROPER notification that I would be charged and no real notification on how to cancel subscription.


Don’t download this app

I just downloaded to try QRBarcodeScanner and it didn’t work out good and I deleted QRBarcodeScanner immediately and this company charged the subscription fee of ~$40. This is a really bad strategy .. it is actually cheating!! I can’t even get refund, even though I deleted QRBarcodeScanner and it didn’t even work good. I need refund!!



There’s no way to cancel the subscription through QRBarcodeScanner .

I only downloaded this to figure out how to cancel the subscription that my mother was tricked into entering the trial for.

It’s an entirely useless app whose main functionality is built into the iOS Camera app (among many others), and its attempts to gain subscriptions are deceptive and evil.


Not satisfied billed for 1 year subscription

I was never asked for a subscription amount or time. QRBarcodeScanner showed free app. I was sign up for 1 year subscription with an automatic renewal.
How do I cancel an get my refund. This is fraud,
It’s a bait and switch.
QRBarcodeScanner says it’s free and they sign you up for one year arrrrh. Where do I cancel? Please help.


I just got charged on my free trial! Wanna refund!

I tried QRBarcodeScanner today but I didn’t like so I cancelled the free trial 2 to 3 hours later but I just realized I got charged the year amount!!!
1St) how I got charged if I cancelled the subscription?
2Nd) how I got charged on my 1st day trial, right after cancelled and inside the 3 FREE DAYS TRIAL?
pls, I want my refund ASAP!
I appreciate it!


Took my money

I didn’t agree with him take my money when I downloaded to my phone I had it for just a few minutes to see what it was unsubscribe to it and it was still charge $53 I cannot get my money back even though I requested it from Apple



Woke up to a $54 dollar charge for a yearly subscription that I didn’t want, for an app that I tried to use one time and didn’t work.

Give me my money back and I’ll consider changing this review. Otherwise you are nothing more than a thief.

Forced to give one star where none are deserved.


What the hell

Hi. I got QRBarcodeScanner tried to use it, it didnt work so I just deleted it. Today I saw my account was charged 39$ and I am a broke college student. I did not want that subscription I did not use it. I really need my money back so I dont starve this week because it was all the money I had.... Please help.


I want my money back

Tried to use QRBarcodeScanner . Didn’t worked at all. I unsubscribed before the trial and they charged my account for a whole freaking year. I email them. I canceled before the end of the trial you have no right to touch my money. I want my money back.


Fraudulent Charges

I want a full refund! QRBarcodeScanner isn’t even on any of our phones and yet they keep billing me. We are reviewing bank records now to see how far the charges go back. I cannot believe Apple lets such a buzzard sell on there platform. I am looking into legal action!


Bad, Sneaky App!

Downloaded app not realizing it was a free trial into a subscription. Subscription not listed on iPhone list so unable to cancel through Apple the way it instructs. Tried to go to the source to cancel and unable to find contact info (phone, email, link). Sneaky and underhanded!
