For pdfFiller’s FAQs

Below is a list of the most common customer questions. If you can’t find an answer to your question, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Can a PDF file be locked?

PDF files are always locked from being changed (read only). Users cannot copy or save protected PDFs into unprotected files, edit or print them. There are no passwords to enter or remove. If a locked PDF is sent to a unauthorized user they will not be able to open it since they need a decryption key.

Can a pdf be locked for editing?

You can protect a file from within Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook or PowerPoint by selecting "Protect PDF" right after you first create the document. You are then taken to a Security Settings dialog box where you can arrange for a password and any editing or copying permission restrictions that you want on the PDF.

How do I make a PDF not editable?

Go to File -> Document Properties and select Security tab. Click Edit button to open the Change Document Security dialog. Un-check Allow Filling Form Fields & Signing. Check Password to Change Permissions checkbox and set the permission password.

What does locking a PDF do?

Locking a PDF can protect the integrity of a document. If you have made comments on a document, or approved a specific version of a document before exporting it as a PDF, locking the PDF from editing can prevent anyone from making changes afterwards.

How do I prevent copying a PDF file?

Select the option "Single PDF Document Security" and push the button "Next >" Click "Browse" button to open a PDF file will be encrypted. Uncheck "Enable Copying of content", and click "Save" or "Save as " button to disallow copying permission in the PDF file.

How do I lock a PDF with a digital signature?

Choose a Signature from the Sign As menu. Enter the Password for the selected digital signature. Select an Appearance, or choose Create New Appearance. Enable Lock Document After Signing if this option is available.
