I received an email today "get ready for new BT Halo" with a QR code to scan to add it to my iPhone Wallet.
Being of a certain age, what is a BT Halo e-ticket and how would I use it. I blindly added it to my iPhone Wallet!
The email was BT genuine and passed all security checks as far as I can see.
Yes, I had already Googled it and found the same answer as you which is a description of the old Halo 1 (now defunct) so none the wiser.
Which is the reason why I asked the question on here 😀 which I can only repeat “what is a BT Halo e-ticket and how would I use it?”. With emphasis on the e-ticket.
I would treat it with suspicion, as the QR code could contain a link to download unwanted code onto your phone. Its easy to be misled by what appears to be a genuine email. I would be inclined to remove the QR code, if you can, before its activated without you being aware.
Google QR code scams.
Hi @Keith_Beddoe No, it was a genuine email from BT. It had my correct BT ID, account number etc. Do you know anything about the BT Halo e-ticket and it’s use?
Edit: I called 150 to double check and they confirmed that they had sent the email. However the advisor I spoke to didn’t have any real idea what the e-ticket was used for! Our combined guesses is it just an easy way to lookup contact details for BT using Wallet.
I Bing-ed as opposed to Googled and came up with this site which appears to say an e-ticket is to print out for travelling. What this has to do with Halo I have no idea.
An e-ticket is the generic term for any electronic ticket, which is what your search revealed.
It doesn't help with Halo e-ticket however.
An e-ticket is what you put in Wallet, whatever it does. Scan the QR code with another device to see what it does.
