Password Protect PDF

How to password protect a PDF

Drop your document in the box above or upload the file by clicking "choose file". Set your password, confirm it a second time and download the encrypted file.

Secure encryption for maximum safety

There are PDF passwords that can be removed easily. We thoroughly encrypt your files so that it would take many thousands of years to crack your password with a regular computer.

A good length for a secure password

For a very secure password we recommend using a non-dictionary word of 7 characters or more. Also include numeric characters, capital letters and symbols.
