The out-of-band pairing of Bluetooth devices utilizing a quick response code provides a novel method for pairing Bluetooth devices. Pairing two devices over Bluetooth can be challenging for a user and presents security issues. The utilization of out-of-band Bluetooth pairing via a quick response code overcomes security problems presented by in-band pairing and does not require internet connectivity or an established server infrastructure to accomplish the Bluetooth pairing, providing a user-friendly experience over traditional pairing techniques.
