    Tap "open" to open the website
    .
    This will take us directly to the website. QR codes allow us to embed a website in an image as a convenient way to access the website. For example, if we see a QR code in an advertisement while walking down the street, we can use a QR scanner to quickly open the website associated with that QR code. In this example, the website associated with the QR code is a newspaper, The Guardian.
