So could this link. Doesn't mean all links or URLs are evil...
Correct, but most people dont look at a QR code as a link. So heads up.
Agree with your suggestion #s 1, 2 and 4.
However, re. your suggestion #3, "Use a QR reader that offers you a preview of the URL that you have scanned so that you can see if it looks suspicious before you go there.", since it's customary to construct QR codes out of shortened URLs, I'm not sure
how one can figure out if the URL looks suspicious or not. For example, a QR code for this blog post page (https://www.finextra.com/blogs/fullblog.aspx?blogid=6371) could be constructed
out of its shortened version http://goo.gl/szlRT, which neither looks genuine nor suspicious.
