Printing via Secure Print (Canon devices)
This article describes how to print a document using the "secure print" feature of a Canon printer. You send the print job from your computer to the printer, but the job is not printed until you walk up to the printer and enter a PIN to release the print job. This is useful to ensure jobs are not lost or that sensitive documents are only seen by the person printing them.
