Now the facility is coming to WhatsApp Messenger, the largest social sharing platform. As per the new report, WhatsApp is testing on QR code to add the contacts.

Now, with the new feature, you don’t have to give your number or ask them. Just tap on the QR code option, and they will be your WhatsApp buddies. When you show the QR code, then your name and the number will automatically generate. The feature is still in work, and the developers need to know everything is working fine and securely. It is in a beta mode for both iOS & Android devices, and soon in the future update, users will get it.

Well, this way, an unknown person can scan the QR, but you can revoke your older QR code any time by replacing the new one.
