HP Printers - Minimum Consumer Printer Security Settings for Open Networks

This document is for consumer HP Deskjet, ENVY, Photosmart, Ink Tank, and Smart Tank printers connected to a network with limited or no security.
HP does not recommend connecting a printer to an open network that is not secured behind a firewall or router. This increases the risk of other people accessing printer functions, printing unwanted pages, or worse. To avoid security issues, make sure the printer is connected to a secured network with a configured firewall or router.
If you must connect the printer to an open network, change security settings to help reduce the risk of unwanted access.
note:
Available settings and menu names vary by printer model and firmware version. Refer to your printer user guide for specific configuration options.

  • Change wireless security to WPA2 or stronger
  • Enable Redirect to HTTPS
  • Set Encryption Strength to High

Web Services and cloud printing

  • Remove Web Services
  • Disable Proxy Settings
  • Disable Google Cloud Print if it is not used

Fax settings
