Chapter 13. Reviewing and Sharing Documents > Setting Password Protection

Setting Password Protection

File encryption is additional security you can apply to a document. File encryption scrambles your password to protect your document from unauthorized people breaking into the file. You can use the Security tab in the Options dialog box to set password protection using file encryption. If you are aware of file encryption types, you can select the one you want to use. You don't have to worry about the encryption, Word handles everything. All you need to do is remember the password. At times, you will want the information to be used but not changed. Setting a document as read-only is useful when you want a document, such as a company-wide bulletin, to be distributed and read, but not changed. Password protection takes effect the next time you open the document.
