  • a PIN number hidden under the scratch cover and
  • an individual QR code that serves as a link to the individual tag image page on the Uatag Website.

✔ The Uatag identifier is a guarantee of product authenticity. The tag is attached at the manufacturing site and cannot be reused or reproduced, thus the product with our tag cannot be a counterfeit. Find out more about Uatag on our FAQ page.

  • Check the information provided about the product (type of product, its manufacturer / owner / seller, etc., transaction time, geotagging).
