Every Dynamic QR Code is assigned a random short URL. The short URL is what redirects to your landing page when the QR Code is scanned. You can customize the short URL (by including your company name, product name, etc) to build more trust among users and to make your brand more visible.

If you would like to edit the short URL, follow the steps below.

1. Select Download next to your QR Code.

Editing a short URL does not remove or change https://l.ead.me/. If you would like to host QR Codes under your own domain, you will need to use our white label feature. This feature is not available with our Starter or Advanced Plans.
