At some point, you may need to email or share otherwise a PDF document that contains confidential or sensitive information. Quite naturally, we feel apprehensive about disclosing such information. In a situation like this, you can blackout any part of a PDF document online using a very simple tool that PDFfiller has to offer. In the past, you would have had to print the document and redact the text with a black highlighter which would often soak through the paper making text on the other side illegible. Besides needing a printer and a scanner, the process probably took far too much time to complete. Now there is a far easier way to redact PDF documents. You can simply use PDFfiller! To get started, upload a document to your account or open one that’s already there. Click the Blackout button, the redacting tools will appear under the main toolbar.
