The LinkedIn QR code makes it easy to meet someone offline, and stay in touch with them on LinkedIn. This feature provides a simple and efficient way to find LinkedIn members, and then connect with them by quickly scanning a QR code.

When you are at a conference event, networking event, sales meeting or any such event, it can be pretty difficult to remember names or exchange contact information. With a LinkedIn QR code, you don’t need to ask others for their business card or how to spell their name; you just need to scan their QR code and you are on their LinkedIn profile. Connecting on LinkedIn is a great way to build your professional community, and LinkedIn wants to help make this even easier for you — wherever those connections take place.

You can put your LinkedIn QR code on your website, brochure, email signature or lanyard.

Each LinkedIn member has their own unique QR code.
