Using Infix you can add or modify security settings on PDFs.

Infix support 48-bit (Acrobat 3 and above) and 128-bit (Acrobat 5 and above) password encryption.

Security level:
• None
• Acrobat 3+ (48 bit)
• Acrobat 5+ (128-bit)

128-bit security is harder to defeat and offers finer control over what operations are allowed on your PDF.

Older style 48-bit security is more compatible.

User Password:
If set, a password must be entered before the PDF can be viewed or printed.

Master Password:
If set, a password must be supplied before changes can be made to security settings.

The things other people are allowed to do with this PDF.

For example, if you want people to be able to add sticky notes without being able to change the content of the PDF, choose Comments & Form-filling

If unchecked, users will have to supply the Master password to be able to unlock locked objects.

This can be useful when distributing templates.

Notes

  • If you forget a PDF's User Password, you will not be able to open the PDF.
  • If you forget a PDF's Master Password, you will not be able to alter the security settings in future.
