    Hi mantra,

    It is called QR Code.
    The QR code contains the file URL. I guess it's not hash for files but URL address coded.
    Because if you move your mouse pointer over the image in this example - then you will see the title text says "File download URL". Also check out the URL address of this image as a confirmation.
    These codes are useful in situations where you may need to download the file or access the webpage to/from a mobile device.

    That's because generally everyone have handhelds (smartphones, tablets, etc.) that can easily scan these codes using apps these days.

    You are welcome.
    That makes sense, by using these codes you don't have to enter sign by sign URL address in your mobile device.

    It doesn't have to contain URL addresses. It can contain names, phone numbers, email and other addresses. Thus, scanning in your phone it can become a contact.

    Hi Mantra,

    These QR codes are on people's businesses and visiting cards. By scanning in it then becomes a contact in the phone book.

    Best regards,

    You are welcome Mantra,

    The image doesn't have to be in black only. It can be very colorful, consisting of more than one color. Also, it can contain the logo of the company or the name of the company in the middle. The information is contained in the three square boxes, the two at the top ends, and the one on the bottom left end. Only three squares.

    Check out the QR codes for KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken)

    P.S. There is a fourth square at the bottom right, but it is not at the edge like the other three squares, and not as big too.

    Best regards,
