    1. Generating a QR Code will also give you the option to generate an Insecure or Secure QR Code. Choose the type that best fits the user policy assigned to that user.

Tips for Choosing the Right QR Code Type

If all QR Code options are available, here is a good breakdown for what each of the choices have in risk and accessibility levels.

  1. If the existing QR Code has been lost or stolen, or if the user does not yet have a QR Code, Create New QR Code. This will require that the student is in a user group that has QR Code as a login method.
  2. If the existing QR Code is simply left at home and temporarily inaccessible, but has not been compromised, you can print a:
    1. Secure QR Code if the user does not usually have to enter their password during login, or
    2. Insecure QR Code if the user is used to entering a password or other login options.
