Is the QRRR.FR domain related to PDF Archive?
Correct! QRRR is an acronym for QRcode Redirect Relay. The domain qrrr.fr is exclusively used by PDF Archive to create a short link associated with your QR code. A short domain name is used to reduce the length of the link associated with your QR code, which helps to reduce the complexity of your QR code and therefore its size.
