Secure Function Lock 3.0

Secure Function Lock lets you restrict public access to the following machine operations(*):

  • Scan to PC/Scan to Workflow
  • Scan to FTP/SFTP
  • Scan to Network
  • Scan to USB
  • Scan to Email Server
  • Scan to WSS (Web Service Scan)

(*); You can confirm available functions of your Brother machine by opening Restricted Functions menu which appears when Secure Function Lock is activated on Web Based Management.


Secure Function Lock also prevents users from changing the default settings from the machine by limiting access to the machine's settings.
Before using the security features you should first enter an administrator password. The administrator can set up restrictions for individual users along with a user password. Carefully write down your password. If you forget it, you will have to reset the password stored in the machine. For more information about how to reset the password, contact Brother Customer Service.

  • Only administrators can set limitations and make changes for each user.
  • (For Windows users only)
    Secure Function Lock can be set using Web Based Management.
