26. Secure a PDF File with Password Protection


By default, new PDF files are not secure. This means that anyone can open, view, print, or make changes to the file. Adding password protection allows you to limit who can open the file, as well as what they can do with it once they have it open. Acrobat provides both powerful and flexible document security, giving you a wide variety of options, including opening the file; printing, copying, and extracting data; adding comments; filling in form data; altering forms; providing access for the disabled; and setting a level of encryption.
