4) Select the Require a Password to open the Document check-box.

6) Click OK to launch the password confirmation box.

8) The password will be applied to the document when you save it. The next time you want to open it, Acrobat will prompt for the password.

To remove the security password from a PDF document:

1) In Acrobat Professional, select Document > Security > Show Security Settings for this Document to display the Document Properties screen.

2) In the Security Tab, click the Security Method drop-down list and select No Security.

3) Acrobat will prompt to make sure you want to remove the password security from the document.

4) Click OK to close the prompt box.

5) Click OK one more time to close the Document Properties screen.

6) When you save the document, the next time you want to open it there will not be a need for a password.
