How to identify genuine HP cartridges
There are several things to look for when differentiating between genuine HP cartridges and counterfeits. Visible security labels, standard pricing, proper packaging, and reliable performance are key attributes of Original HP cartridges.
- Check the label
Identify the security label on the box and make sure that as you move it back and forth, and up and down, the color changes or the “OK” and “√” move across label.
- Scan the code
Use the HP SureSupply app or a generic QR code reader to scan the QR code on the cartridge’s security seal.1 If you cannot capture QR codes with a smartphone, go to www.hp.com/go/ok to validate online.
