Phishing is a technique of cybercrime that commits fraud by masquerading as trusted entity. The focus of phishing is to get sensitive information. At present, the development of phishing has used QR code as phishing media. The aim of phishers is to cheat the target by visiting fake webs via QR code. This research uses the Address Bar Based and Domainbased approach. The Address bar-based approach is an approach to examine some unique criteria from a URL. A domain-based approach is a third-party site that provides real-time domain checks (Website traffic and age of the domain). Additional blacklist features from Phistank are complementary features. This research aims to design an Anti-Qrishing technique to detect Qrishing (QR Code Phishing) in Real-Time via Smartphone. The test was conducted with 500 QR Code, consisting of 300 QR Code phishing with various manipulation techniques, 120 safe QR Code and 80 suspicious QR Code. This test gets 98,4% accuracy, and 1,6% error detection.
