I noticed the bar on my badge.. and I assume it will be scanned? Why is this going to be occurring (since I assume that is what will be happening)?

Bloo will be here to give an official answer but~

They are going to be scanned, and I'm assuming less badge fraud.

I pulled this from Bloo's first annoucement about the badges:


"QR Code!
Many will see our badge labels look different! They are. With a new registration system comes a new look. Do NOT draw on or cover your label with stickers etc. Staff need to be able to see your badge number and the QR code. WE ARE scanning badges this year. When scanned the staff member with their staff system account can view the information attached to your badge showing it is a true, purchased badge, and showing us your emergency contact info (in case we're scanning during an emergency involving you, which we hope will not happen!). When scanned by non staff it shows the ACen.org webpage. There is NO personal information shown by scanning it by non staff members, there's actually no information shown at all when scanned by non staff. Not just any staff can view the QR code. Only those approved to have an account with staff access may. Which includes some IRT, EMRT, Registration, etc. "

Yeah, the QR code is really just for staff use to get your information incase a situation arises...and validation of badge (if need be, though I doubt anyone would make fake badges...right? :P )

Just makes our live a little easier to help you guys out if need be. :]

Scanning the badges is actually faster than checking the badge by eye if it's fake and it's impossible to fake our QR code :) So where this is used it should speed up lines and catch those less honest people with copied badges. Also like it says above, we can scan for your emergency contact info, and we plan on scanning lost badges to call the cell phone of it's owner if they entered a cell number in their account. We had bar codes in the past, this is just a step into the future/present.
