How to install and use CamScanner?

To install the CamScanner APK file on your Android device you need to authorize the installation from unknown sources. You usually find this option in Settings > Security. You can also complete this same process from the popup window that appears on some Android devices when directly installing an APK. Then, go to the Downloads folder on your phone and you will see the file ready to unzip and install.

Through the camera of your cell phone, you can scan invoices, business cards, reports and whatever comes to mind. The software has a smart cropping tool and saves texts with optimal definition and sharpness thanks to its highlighting function. You can also send the files to the nearest printer to print them using cloud print and for important files you can include an access password.

Is CamScanner safe?

There have been some misunderstandings in 2021 as a couple of apps with similar, misleading names appeared on Google Play Store that were infected by spyware.
