Password Security

Using AVS Document Converter you can secure your output PDF files with a password, so that you will be able to control the access to your personal and work documents. There are two different types of password protection:

  • Open file. You can lock your files with a Document Open password (also known as a User password), so that only a person who knows the correct password will be able to open and view the document.
  • File usage permissions. You can lock your files and disallow users to perform various operations, so they won't be able to edit, print or copy content of the protected document.

Note!Note: this section is available only for .pdf output file format.

Check the Permissions box to turn the password security on.

Enter the Owner Password in the Owner field. The Owner Password allows the owner of the document to access various permissions from within a PDF viewing application.

Enter the User Password in the User field. In order to open the created PDF document users must enter this password before being able to view the file.

Note!Note: the Owner and User passwords cannot be the same.

Check the Editing box of the Restrict field to prevent the user from modifying the PDF document.

Check the Printing box of the Restrict field to prevent the user from printing the PDF document.
