Enabling contactless visitor sign-in

How to enable contactless visitor sign-in so visitors can sign in on their own device, without touching the iPad.

What is contactless visitor sign-in?

Contactless visitor sign-in is here to help ensure a hygienic, touch-free way to sign in. Visitors can scan a QR code with their smartphone camera, and complete their registration in a web browser on their own device. There is no need for your visitors to download an app to their device, simply scan and get started immediately.

Enabling the dynamic contactless visitor sign-in QR code on the SwipedOn iPad app

After updating your iPad with the latest iOS update, navigate to the web dashboard 'Settings' > 'Contactless' view and click the checkbox against 'Generate QR code on iPad'.


The iPad will now display the QR code in the lower right corner of the screen, so when a visitor arrives, they simply need to open the camera on their mobile device to scan the QR code on the iPad.


This will prompt them to open the sign-in form on their default web browser where they can enter their details and complete the contactless sign-in process.


*Please note, the QR code sign-in does not display a list of employees to pick from - visitors can type in the name of the host they are searching for and then select from names that match.

Generating a static contactless visitor sign-in QR code

Navigate to the 'Settings' > 'Contactless' view and click the 'Generate' button below 'Generate Static QR code'. An image file containing the QR code can then be downloaded and saved.


*Please note, if subscribed to a multi-location Enterprise plan, first select your location, and a QR code specifically for this location will be generated, click here to find out more about location settings.

*The static QR codes do not have the host selection option. For data security and privacy, only the QR code on the iPad that refreshes every 30 minutes has host selection available.


Your unique QR code can be printed out for visitors to scan using their personal device and sign in, or displayed on any digital device. Static codes never expire, while those shown on the iPad expire and refresh regularly, helping to ensure that visitors can only be signing in from the location of your iPad.

Recommended Android QR scanning apps

A majority of smartphones already support native QR code scanning. Consumers with legacy smartphones can use QR scanner apps for accessing content linked to QR codes. Apps free such as Google Lens, QR code reader or QR & Barcode Reader are all free and available via the Google Play store on android devices.
