Can not scan barcode?
Your phone’s camera may have trouble scanning the code if it’s tilted at an angle. Make sure it’s level with the surface that the code is printed on. If you’re holding your phone too close or too far away, it won’ t scan the code. Try holding your phone about a foot away and slowly moving it towards the QR code.
How do you destroy barcodes?
For a linear barcode (bar-space patterns), its very simple. Take a black permanent marker, pick a spot in the middle of the barcode and fill in 3–5 spaces in the barcode with black ink forming a solid black patch. Since most linear barcodes have no error correction capability, it will now simply fail to decode.
Can barcodes be faked?

Is my barcode scannable?
If you don’t modify the barcode after generating it (for example, manually editing its dimensions in Illustrator) and it’s printed in a high quality way, it will be scannable. Buy a USB barcode scanner like IntelliScanner Pro, then scan your barcodes to make sure they scan and verify the value.
Are barcodes safe?

Why is my barcode font not working?

Does size of barcode matter?

However, if you scale too far and the bars end up too close together, you will start to get a high level of read errors.
How do you destroy a shipping label?
If it’s stuck firmly to a cardboard box, just cut that section of box out and peel the cardboard skin off with the sticker and you’ll be good to shred from there. Personally, I use a box cutter to cut out the shipping label from cardboard boxes and later burn them when I get a sufficient pile of labels.
