MFD Secure Print

Konica Minolta



Secure Print with a Multi Function Device


Windows Secure Print
Konica Minolta copiers have a secure print facility.  This allows you to send a print job to a photocopier but not have that job actually print out until you reach the copier. This may be useful if, say, the copier is not in close proximity to your office and the document you are printing contains confidential or sensitive data. When sending more than one document in this way, they are all held on the copier until you ‘release’ them using the control panel on the copier itself.
Once you have successfully added a photocopier to your list of printers, follow these instructions if you wish to send a print job securely. 
To Use the Secure Print feature, in the application you are using open the print dialogue.
  1. In the printer name box make sure the correct MFD is selected.
  2. Then choose Preferences.
  3. In the window which appears there should be an Output Method option. Click the drop-down arrow to change the output method to Secure Print.
  4. You’ll now be prompted for a user ID and password. The username can be any text – simply your initials would be fine. A 4-digit number of your choice would suffice as the PIN – you are going to have to enter this on the copier in a minute.
  5. Click Ok, Ok and Ok.
  6. You’ll now be prompted with – “Are you sure you wish to use secure print?”  Choose Ok
