Rewriting the QR Code
QR code carries information stored both in the first embedded QR code and the latest embedded QR code. According to this feature of QR code, if you copy the output which is already printed QR code and embed the new QR code on it, condition set for the Document Scan Lock mode will never be lowered than the previous one. For example, even if the latest scan lock information is set to <Allow All>, the first scan lock information embedded in the QR code is <Prohibit All>, <Prohibit All> is applied for the next Document Scan Lock mode.
Information Embedded in the QR Code
The following tracking information is embedded in the QR code.
