  1. Hi all,

    Nice blog! The Adobe Acrobat application is the tool used to create, modify and secure PDF documents. Using Adobe Acrobat password security may be applied to any PDF document. Once the password has been applied to the document, be sure to record the password and provide to users as needed. Thank you...
