There are several methods for protecting pdf’s. I’ll try these out and report on my progress.
- Use Acrobat to require a password. This might work for a single-password. Can the public view this pdf Testing password process? This worked. Is there any downside to just using Acrobat to handle the password requirement if only one password is issued? It might be a hassle to reset the password. Nope, that was easy.
- However, now I had to reload the pdf and link to the new version.
- And if I lose the password I can’t open my own document.
I’ll try another method and report back.
