How to protect a PDF form with password
Having sensitive information in PDF might be tricky, but you can always password protect it, so people outside your organization wouldn’t have a way to even open it.
Steps 1. Open your PDF in Adobe Acrobat Pro and proceed to the Protect option under Tools or in the right side bar:
Step 2. Under More Options select Security Properties:
Step 3. Choose Password Security in the dropdown below:
Step 4. Tick the checkbox next to Require a password to open a document and come up with a password for this file:
Step 5. Save changes to the PDF form and upload it to the folder that is used in a workflow.
As a result, any person will need to enter a password in order to open a PDF.
In case you’d like your users to open such protected PDFs without entering password manually each time they open a document, consider a document management software solution like Fluix.
