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.
Compare two versions.
Just check the Restrict Editing box in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Outlook for Windows to prevent others from copying or editing your PDFs.
Password Protect a PDF file.
Control access to your PDF files. Encrypt your files and add either a certificate or passwords that recipients must enter before they can open or preview your PDF 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 your file with edit and copy restrictions applied automatically.
Make file protection easy for your team.
Create custom security policies to help everyone apply PDF password protection and permissions the same way every time.
