Using QR Code to Restrict Copying

 
You can configure the machine to forcibly print QR code on copied or printed documents, to prevent them from being copied. With QR code, tracking information such as who, when, and which machine was used to output the document is always recorded.
Some multifunctional printer settings may allow documents to be printed or copied even though duplication is restricted with scan lock information. <Doc. Scan Lock Operation Settings>  <Document Scan Lock QR Code Settings>
