In the wake of apprehension of cyber warfare and data security and privacy issues resulting into banning Chinese apps especially CamScanner we need a Swadeshi (India made app). That lacuna has been filled up......Great initiative .....especially non-collection of one's personally identifiable information ....eye-opener for every welfare organisation of a welfare state....I have installed..

It is a superb and useful app. Scanning becomes cakewalk. At last, my data is mine alone. Kudos to Team@SelfScan. Use SeflScan, remain safe.

All premium functions of other products to be available.


Data always stay in the device. No storing of data by the app on any server.

Off-line Facility

After installation no internet is required for Scanning documents even for OCR.

Completely free

Completely free! No adds! No registration is required for using this app.



The SelfScan does not capture any personal data of the user. No cookies, no background data collection. Its design policy is privacy centric.

Free Data Functioning

Scanning is done inside user's own device without sending it to the server.

Functional with Multiple Pages

Multi-page document scan supported.


OCR Facility

OCR support is presently for English. We are committed to bring it for Bengali, Hindi and other languages too. Due to design policy no data is sent to server even for OCR, hence all processing is done at your device. This poses many challenges in improving the OCT of handwritten text. But we are working on it and hope to pleasantly surprise you in next version.

Beta version of Visiting card

How cool it would be to click a visiting card and get its content as contact in your mobile phone! We are working on it with limited success. Again our app design policy forbids us to transfer data to server. Hence we are trying to create the magic on your phone itself ! Hope to surely surprise you with this feature in next versions!!
