Blackout PDF Online in Google Drive For Free
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.
To black out text, click the highlighter icon and select the content that you want to black out by clicking and dragging the cursor. Release the cursor when you have finished redacting the text. You can use the slider to resize the tool.
You can also blackout a picture of any dimensions. Click the rectangle icon, place the cursor at any angle of the rectangle you need to blackout, press down the mouse button, drag to the opposite angle of the rectangle and release the button.
