PDF Protector is an easy-to-use tool to encrypt or decrypt your PDF documents.

Set a password and let PDF Protector encrypt your documents to hinder others from opening it. You can also set a separate password that has to be known by everyone who wants to copy or print content of your your document. Of cause PDF Protector also lets you remove any of these security mechanisms, providing you know the password. Since PDF Protector uses standard PDF functions, it works perfectly with other PDF applications. If you have to to encrypt or decrypt a lot of documents with the same password, you can set a default password to be used by PDF Protector.

• Supports Adobe Standard 40-bit Encryption and Adobe Advanced 128-bit Encryption.
• Password protect opening of the document.
• Unlock protected documents with the correct password.
• Prevent printing of the document.
• Prevent copying and changes to the document.
• Easy to use.
• Possibility to remember and use a standard password.
• Compatible with all common PDF readers, such as Preview.app or Adobe Reader
• Does NOT need Adobe Acrobat software.

Version 1.0.2
Review by PurpleRoom

does what it says - This application does exactly what the seller claims. My pdf document (including clipart, pictures, fonts) now cannot be copied, edited or even PRINTED (awesome) without the password. When I try any of those functions, a little screen pops up asking for the password. The application installed right on my tool bar and was ready to use immediately. The screen shots pretty much show it all. It's ipad simple. I have OS 10.6. This application works perfectly. I read a review indicating that the application doesn't unlock pdf files. Perhaps the features were written unclearly on earlier versions. This version, 1.0.2, states you can unlock pdf that you lock. There is nothing saying you can break into other pdf docs that you did not lock and/or to which you do not have the password. Now, of course high level stealers will always find a way to hack anything, including locked pdfs (there's always an app for that). But if you want to protect your or someone elses original work from low level stealers then this app will do the trick.

One PDF at a time - Not able to drop more than 1 file. It takes long enough to be the same as using preview app

Review by Kozyinn

Not Working - I purchased this app to restrict copying of information in PDF files. It worked the first few times I used it. Now it does nothing to restrict copying. It tells me that my documents have been locked successfully but when I check the files, or have friends check the files, the informaiton is not being restricted. I was hopeful that things would start working after the recent update. No such luck. Sorry to say it's not working for me, at least under Mojave 10.14.6
