A simple plugin enabling you to log into WordPress by scanning a QR Code with your mobile device.
QR or Quick Response Codes are a type of 2-dimensional barcode that can be read using smartphones and dedicated QR reading devices. They link directly to text, emails, websites, address book entries and much more. Use Zapper to quickly and accurately decode both QR Codes and barcodes.
The Zapper app is a smartphone application that lets you register, login and pay both online and offline by scanning Zapper-enabled QR Codes. Zapper uses QR Codes to safely transmit your data from your smartphone to the particular website you’re browsing. Zapper is brought to you by Zapper Limited.
Scan-to-Login is the service from Zapper that makes it possible for websites to handle registration, login and payment via the Zapper app.
That’s easy… Download Zapper, tap the “Options” button in the top right corner, tap “Edit Profile” and fill out the “My Profile” section. This can also be done when scanning a Zapper-enabled QR Code for the first time. Filling out your profile is a once-off task as your details will be encrypted and stored on your phone, ready for use next time you need them.
Open the Zapper scanner app on your mobile and line up the QR Code or barcode to be scanned in your camera view. Hold the phone still and it will automatically scan within a few moments.

Zapper never stores your personal data and only you and the relevant website will ever see the decrypted data. Your credit card number is also never displayed in full and you can boost the security of Zapper by password-protecting the data stored in the app.

It may sound complicated, but it is pretty easy to explain. Authentication is a way of verifying that you are entitled to access the information you want to access. There are three broad ways to authenticate a user. These are: Something the user knows (e.g.: a username and password). This is the most popular online. Something a user has: (e.g.: a security token, mobile phone or key fob) Something the user is: (e.g.: a fingerprint, a retina pattern, their face)
2-Factor Authentication occurs when a user has to use 2 of the three methods above to gain access. 3-Factor Authentication is when a user has to use all 3 of the methods above to be authenticated. Multi-factor Authentication occurs when a user is using the same method but multiple times (eg: using two passwords, using both a fingerprint and retina pattern and so on)
