When I try to go into HP 5540 setting to connect printer to scan, I get a message that "This connection is not private" and cannot connect. I have driver 2.0

@Bucina1, Welcome to HP Support Community!


I understand you are trying to use the scan functionality of the printer. Refer to the document HP Printers - How to Scan (Mac)  to learn different ways of scanning on Mac. 


If there is anything particular you're looking for, share the screenshot of the window that appears for further assistance.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
