PDF security

PDF security

Didn't find your answer?

Could anyone please recomend a suitable software which is inexpensive so that I can password protect a PDF document before sending as an e-mail attachment. I've been looking at PDF Element, has anyone used this and is it successful? Your advice would be much appreciated.

PDF-Xchange is pretty good, as it can do a lot more besides passwording and so you may find it worthwhile for other use, too.

You can do it for free from a terminal window if you run Ubuntu.

If you are generating from Microsoft word or Excel or indeed any Office product you can add security when you export.

winzip courier can do both on the fly. That is when you send a email with an attachment it asks if you want to zip it with a password. I believe it is 30 days free trial

PDF Mate does it for free but it's a bit clunky

I use Soda PDF. They usually run deals so instead of £70 odd it's £30 but it does batch passwording too and you can put in text boxes, markups, rearrange pages, merge PDFs etc. Not to mention compressing. Pretty good.

I use NitroPDF - really easy, not too expensive and has a few more added features like digital signatures included too.

On Apple Macs you get the free Preview which exports any PDF as an encrypted password-protected email
