When working with sensitive information, it’s your job to protect it. With Acrobat DC, it’s easy to make PDF protection part of your daily routine — no matter what application you’re using.
Create protected PDFs in Office applications.
Just check the Restrict Editing box in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Outlook for Windows to prevent others from copying or editing your PDFs.
Create a password challenge.
Control access to your PDF files. Add passwords that recipients must enter before they can open your document.
Use actions to apply protections to PDFs.
With the Publish Sensitive Information action in Acrobat Pro DC, you’ll be guided through a series of steps to redact, password-protect, and save with edit and copy restrictions applied automatically.
Make file protection easy for your team.
Create custom security policies to help everyone apply PDF passwords and permissions the same way every time.
How to protect PDF files in Office applications for Windows:
- In an Office application, click the Create PDF button in the Acrobat task ribbon.
- Type a file name and select Restrict Editing.
- In the resulting Security dialog box, set up a password and permissions as desired.
