|Read on to Secure PDFs for free|
Full disclosure: I actually created these screenshots using an old version, in November, 2013. I wrote this blog post, then forgot to publish it, yet I subsequently convinced myself that it was a published post... for seventeen months, I have been telling people to check it out if they needed a free way to secure PDFs. I'm an Adobe Pro user now, and it is much, much easier! Still, if you only need to do this occasionally, here is the tutorial... if you really feel like trusting a lady who thought this was done seventeen months ago, but just realized yesterday that the post was unavailable, and who obviously did not plan ahead for this month's Bright Ideas post.
First step, download and install
|Install PDFill Free PDF Tools|
|Open PDFill, click File|
|Select PDF Tools|
|Option 3, Encrypt Options|
|Select the PDF you want to secure|
|Make sure the Printing box is not checked if you want folks to be able to print!!|
|Owner Password - It's good to write that down, just in case. ;) Encrypt As...|
|You can tell it's secured when you see the word (SECURED) in the file name|
