PDF Encryption

PDF encryption enables you to securely protect the content of your PDF file from unwanted viewers and against unwanted actions like printing, selecting text, etc.

Following example shows how to convert any workbook to encrypted PDF file with restricted permissions which requires a password to be decrypted, viewed and, optionally, modified.

Password and owner password should be specified in the appropriate text box.
