Adding Password Protection to Documents

Another way to restrict which users can open or modify a document is to use password protection. When you use password protection, users must enter a password before they can open or change the password-protected document. Standard passwords in Word are case sensitive; they can be up to 15 characters long, and they can contain any combination of letters, numerals, spaces, and symbols.

Tip

Create passwords longer than 15 characters

If you want to create passwords that are longer than 15 characters (to a maximum of 255 characters), you can do so by choosing another encryption type for your document. To do this, choose Tools, Options, click the Security tab, click Advanced, and then choose an RC4 encryption type in the Encryption Type dialog box.
