Snapcodes for accessing CliqTags sites

Update: Snapchat also supports standard QR codes, that don’t require the procedure below. You just use the QR codes that CliqTags generate.

This enables printing/showing Snapcodes instead of normal QR codes, and as most younger people have Snapchat installed, reach them with your information.

The Snapcode to the right goes to, the demo site for CliqTags.

See e.g. Techcrunch – Snapchat now lets you make QR Snapcodes that open websites

Create a Snapcode

I found creating the Snapcode on a PC much more practical, as you download a high resolution Snapcode that you can directly print.

On a phone

So far only on iPhone, but will come for Android as well.

  1. Start Snapchat.
  2. Open Settings.
  3. Select Snapcodes.
  4. Click on Create Snapcode.
  5. Enter a URL.
  6. Click on Create.
  7. Possibly add an image.
  8. Click on Save.

On a PC

  1. Go to
  2. Log in to your Snapchat account.
  3. Enter a URL.
  4. Click on Make a Snapcode.
  5. Possibly add an image.
  6. Click on Download Your Snapcode.

Read a Snapcode

This has been tested on Android and iOS.

  • Start Snapchat.
  • Activate the camera.
  • Point at the Snapcode.
  • Snap a photo.
  • Confirm that you want to go to the site.
