*We changed the QR code experience, but changing our Knowledge Base articles to reflect the new platform will take some time. Thanks for your patience.
Pinterest supports QR Codes
And our CoverCards work beautifully in their camera. To see a code's content:
- Launch Pinterest.
- Tap the camera icon in the top nav (to the right of the search box).
- Point the camera at a QR Code.
If you created a CoverCard in Phy and checked this box below (for universal discovery), your CoverCard will appear almost immediately after pointing the camera view at the QR Code.
A tap of your CoverCard will then launch the Destination URL, MicroSite, or TapAction you added.

This is a CoverCard created in Phy for a Jeni's Ice Cream experience on mobile. It took 60 seconds to make.
Here's how it looks in Pinterest using their Lens feature. Nice, right?
