What is IG?
The information that's embedded in the barcode has all the information on there.

Now, the QR code on the BP. On some airlines (won't say all), it has your FF information, the fare you paid, ticket number, BN, contact information, etc. If someone wanted to play a cruel joke on you, they could call customer service and change your reservations.

IG = Instagram. People post pics of their BP saying they're going somewhere or if they got upgraded. It's ripe for getting information.
