Here’s some information on how you can password protect PDF files on your blog for your own protection.
Why You Might Want to Password Protect a PDF on Your Blog
You could have a variety of reasons for wanting to password protect a PDF file on your blog. You may want to do it so that no one edits the document. You might want to do it so that no one copies it or steals your ideas. It’s an easy process, no matter your reason for wanting to password protect the document.
Steps to Password Protect a PDF for Your Blog
The best way to password protect your PDF file for your blog is to use a reliable password protection program. Adobe Acrobat is an amazing program that you can use to view, edit, and password protect PDF files. Here are the steps you need to take to password protect PDF files for your blog:
Choose Your File
The first thing you need to do is select your file using the “select file” button. You will then have access to the file you want to password-protect.
Create a Password
The next thing to do is to create a password. Your password should be more than six letters long, and you may want to add some numbers and a special character to make it harder for people to guess it without authorization to do so. Once you choose your password, you’ll need to type it into the program.
Confirm Your Password
The next step is to confirm your password. Confirming it ensures that you have it recorded in your mind properly. This also verifies your password before you make it go into effect permanently.
Set Your Password
After you’ve verified your password, you can set it to make the password protection process complete. Your document now has a password on it that other people will need to use if they would like to gain access to your material.
Download Your PDF
The only thing left for you to do after you set up your password is to download your PDF file and use it the way you want to use it. You can now attach it to your blog. Anyone who wants to read it will have to obtain the password from you somehow.
They will have to request it from you to gain access to the sensitive material you have posted on your blog. It’s as simple as that.
Now you can start protecting your material by taking advantage of the features Adobe Acrobat has to offer. You’ll be glad you took the time to do so.
Take the steps mentioned above if you feel that you need to add protection to the pdf files on your blog.
