Similar to the company’s previous Nametags function.

Instagram has recently incorporated another QR code feature into its system, allowing users to visit other profiles easily. According to The Vergethe feature was first introduced in Japan last year for businesses to give its customers their QR code and have them scan it to open their social account on the spot.
