How to identify genuine HP print cartridges
There are several things to look for when differentiating between genuine HP print cartridges and counterfeits. Visible security labels, standard pricing, proper packaging, and reliable performance are key attributes of Original HP print cartridges.
Step 1. Check Security Label.
Perform the following to visually verify that the label is valid:
Tilt front to back to see “OK” and “√” move in opposite directions
Tilt right to left to see “OK” and “√” move in the same direction
Step 2. Scan the code
Use the HP SureSupply app or a generic QR code reader to scan the QR code on the cartridge’s security label.1 If you cannot capture QR codes with a smartphone, go to www.hp.com/go/ok to validate online.
Step 3. Report counterfeit.
Please keep the print cartridge, its packaging and any documents relating to the product, such as invoices, offer letters, etc.
