QR codes safe

Since September 22, Ontarians have been printing out COVID-19 vaccine receipts or saving them to their phones in order to go to restaurants, see a movie, or hit the gym.

The province is saying the codes will be available for printing or digital storage.

Which is a good answer since not everyone carries around a smart phone. Many people are wondering, will this tool keep my information private?
