Protect your printers. Recognise and report counterfeit toner

Today, with counterfeit toner on the rise, it’s vital for organisations to safeguard their supplies and technology. HP has taken precautions when it comes to their packaging, so that customers can easily identify Original HP Toner from illegal, counterfeit toner. It’s now easier than ever to spot the fakes!

Counterfeit manufacturers sell fake toner to businesses to cheat them out of their money. The moment you realise you're using counterfeit toner is when it’s already in the printer, damaging your device.

Counterfeit cartridges are refilled or remanufactured print cartridges packed in unauthorized or fake reproductions of HP packaging. The manufacturers of fake toners sell them to cheat customers out of their money, and it’s only obvious when customers experience the poor performance of the counterfeit cartridges. HP is constantly striving to protect customers from counterfeiters with new security measures.

There are three ways to spot the fake toners:

1. Scan the code

Locate your HP security seal5 and open your QR code scanner app. If you don't have a QR code6 scanner, you can use our HP SureSupply app.

Use your smartphone's camera to scan the QR code on the cartridge's security seal. After your scanner processes the QR code, you'll see a validation screen from HP.

2. Inspect the security label

Look for these 3 tell-tale signs that your cartridge may have been tampered with:
The lines in the pattern do not match
The label is coloured rather than transparent
The text changes on the label to show 'seal is void'
Page maximiser technology
"OK" and "√" move in opposite directions when tilting the box top to bottom.
"OK" and "√" move in opposite directions when tilting the box left to right.

3. Check online

To validate, visit and enter the serial number from the security label.

Anti-Counterfeit Toner FAQs

What’s a QR code?

A QR code is a Quick Response barcode. QR codes can be encoded with text, a URL, or other data and decoded at high-speed by smartphones with built-in cameras. The QR codes on the new HP security seals contain serial numbers to allow quick verification of product authenticity.

When should customers become suspicious that they may have bought counterfeit products?

HP has very high quality standards for all products, including printing supplies. Original HP printing supplies are always delivered new – never refilled or remanufactured – and usually come in unopened, high quality packaging. Therefore, the following indicators might point to counterfeit products:

  • The print quality of a print cartridge is poor and/or inconsistent.
  • Printing supplies are delivered in packaging that appears to have been tampered with or the packaging is of poor quality.
  • Print cartridges are covered with toner dust or ink or they leak inside the printer.
  • The print cartridge fails – the failure rate of a counterfeit product is extremely high.
  • The yield of a print cartridge (number of possible printouts) is very low

Are counterfeit print cartridges and remanufactured/refilled print cartridges the same thing?

No. Customers should not confuse counterfeiting with legitimate refilled/remanufactured products, which are sold or offered in such a way that does not confuse or potentially confuse customers into believing they are brand new genuine HP products. An example of a legitimate refilled product would be a product which clearly states “refill” or “remanufactured”, which does not misuse the HP logo to give the impression it has been made by HP, but uses a refiller company name; and generally does not misuse the design elements of an original HP print cartridge and its packaging.
