Microscan has introduced Image Lock technology to its latest handheld barcode readers, the HS-41X and HS-51X. Image Lock ensures photos taken by a reader’s camera are never accessible by users or software, protecting sensitive information.
Developed for customers with strict security requirements, Image Lock secures captured images within the device, where images are automatically deleted once a symbol is decoded. Since the images are deleted, they are not made available to connected barcode setup or configuration software user interfaces, nor are they directly accessible by users to view or download from the device. This prevents unintentional or deliberate leaks of sensitive material.
