Data transmission, security and authenticity, nowadays is considered the major source of problems. To face these problems a suitable solution have to be forwarded . Steganography is forwarded  one of the solutions as a technique among many. This paper includes proposal for using a new technique called (Quick Respond Codes) QR Codes .
QR Codes technique is mainly used to convert and store messages since it has higher and large storage capacity, in addition to that we used, in this paper , the STR (Short Tandem Repeats) DNA sequence. STR DNA is very important because each person has its own DNA which means that security and authentication ) reliable ( are very high. The proposed  method   is to convert the hidden data (STR DNA sequence) to QR code that mean the security is at maximum. Then, by using the MD5 (Message Digest 5) Algorithm,  the result data is converted to QR code and the data within the data areas are stored in an unusually large format to make retrieval difficult.
Finally, STR DNA sequences were applied in different lengths and converted to QR code. By this method , the QR code is applied in different applications and it was very fast (3-4 second). To apply this technique and to reduce the cost, we use a webcam to get back the private (confidential) data from the QR code. The data were retrieved completely without any error because QR code is reliable and authentic. From the above result we suggest to use QR Code for indentification of  the of the individual (ID).
