Presentation of credentials

If the credential is being requested from a device that is not the wallet (cross device), to present the credential is necessary to access the QR code scanning section of the wallet and scan the QR code.

Scanning Menu

If the credential is being requested from the mobile phone itself (same device) the credential is presented through a deep link from the wallet, transparently to the user.
