Oh, sorry. I got it now. You can create the qr as Jason said recently using
"pass blah | qrencode -t ansi". My android camera automatically detects qr
codes, and pressing the copy button I get the code in my clipboard.

It may be a good idea create some app that monitors the clipboard and
deletes the contents after X amount of time. Or add that feature to an open
source app like https://github.com/zxing/zxing
