The additional PDF security features include -
- Access protection,
- Print options, and
- View/Share Protection.
These options protect any sensitive PDF documents when applied.
The Access Protection option allows you to enable a password requirement to open up the document after it has been downloaded by the recipient. This ensures that only the recipient of the PDF file can open it on their computer.
The PDF Password is automatically generated and can be found under the user’s profile. With certain permissions this password can also be changed to a password of your choice for the recipient.
The option to allow the recipient to print the PDF document. It can either be turned off completely to prevent the document from being printed or printing can be allowed with low resolution or high resolution.
The View/Share Protection can be set to either Low or High Security. If the PDF document is set to Low Security, the recipients will be able to use the search and copy/paste functions on the text within the document. If shared with Full Security, the document will be automatically watermarked. Full security will also ensure the document will not allow search or copy/paste of any text within the document.
