TIP 141: Using Security Levels and Passwords for a Document

You can add password security to a document in source programs that use a PDFMaker, from programs such as Photoshop CS or InDesign CS, or set the options in Distiller. In Acrobat, you add the security through the Document Properties or Security Policies dialog. Add passw ords if you intend to convert and email a document from your source program; if you plan to work with the document in Acrobat, or want to set specific encryption options, wait until the work is complete and then add passwords. Otherwise, each time you open the document you have to reenter your passwords.

Some Words About Passwords

Here are a few things to remember about Acrobat passwords:

  • A PDF file with both Document Open and Permissions passwords can be opened by using either password.

  • Passwords can use any characters, but they are case sensitive.

  • You can't use the same characters for both Document Open and Permissions passwords.
