Why sign in?

If you are referring to HP Smart, the requirements have changed in the application.

 

You need not sign in if you do not use HP Smart.

For example, Install and use the Full Feature Software / HP Scan (included in the printer software).

 

Example - HP Smart - Windows - Main Menu

HP_Smart_W10_Start_Screen_4HP_Smart_W10_Start_Screen_4

 

References / Resources

 

HP Account - Login / Dashboard

Note:  Log into your HP Account if / when you need central access to your device information, including the ability to update your personal  information.

 

HP Smart for Windows

 

HP Smart is an application available in the Microsoft Store

 

Learn how to use HP Smart on your Windows 10 computer.

Open the Software and Drivers Support Website for your printer > Check the Box Get the App

OR

HP Printers - Using the HP Smart App (Windows 10)

NOTES: 

  • Website includes the HP Smart software for Windows and Mobile devices, plus an FAQ section to assist with questions / issues
  • Latest versions of HP Smart require that you be signed into the application
