Hey Friends! Today, I'm going to tell you how to password protect your PDF files while creating them. You often come to a situation when you make a document using Microsoft Office and then export it to a PDF file. You can password protect your Microsoft Office documents by exporting them to a 2003 format.
So, if you make any secret or important document through it, you must have to save it in Microsoft Office 2003 format.
But now, you can also save your documents by making them PDF also in Microsoft Office.
Let's know why we prefer to use PDF files rather than Microsoft Office???

Advantages of having a PDF file:

  • First, you can compress your Office documents by making them PDF.

  • It also can be shared and even slow speed internet users can upload/download and share it.

  • It can be opened/viewed in different devices so if any one don't have a device (e.g., PC or windows PC) that supports Office, can also view and use it.

So, proceed furthur to know the steps that how you can password protect your PDF files.....

Steps to protect your PDF files:

  • First, make the document you want to protect in Microsoft Office's program (e.g., Word, Excel, etc.)

  • Then, go to "Save As" option. In the "Save As Type" submenu, select PDF option.

  • Then, a link "Option" will be shown below, click on it.

  • In the PDF options column, click "Encrypt the document with a password" option and enter the password you want to apply.

  • Then simply save it & done.

Now, Enjoy :) You will find that your PDF file ask for a password while
you open it everytime :)

Note: Some versions of Microsoft Office (e.g., MS Office 2007,etc.) doesn't have "Save As PDF" option. So, first you have to download "Save As PDF or XPS" extension form Microsoft's Website. Anyone can download & install it as it is a freeware.
