MapSoft SecuritySetter is an Adobe Acrobat plug-in for applying security to pdf files. Set two types of password to limit access to your PDF files.
Acrobat has various in-built security features controlling access to PDF documents. Within Acrobat these features have to be set on a file-by-file basis (by selecting the File > Save As menu item). Mapsoft SecuritySetter allows you to set these security features once, and then apply those settings to a large number of files when used in conjunction with Mapsofts automation tool, Automator. Obviously if security options are set for multiple files, all files opened in the same batch must have the same or compatible security settings.

Mapsoft SecuritySetter - Features

Acrobat has various in-built security features controlling access to PDF documents. Within Acrobat these features have to be set on a file-by-file basis (by selecting the File > Save As menu item). However, Mapsoft SecuritySetter allows you to set these security features once, and then apply those settings to a large number of files if used in conjunction with Mapsofts Automator tool. Obviously if security options are set for multiple files, all files opened in the same batch must have the same or compatible security settings.

Using the SecuritySetter tool you can set two types of password to limit access to your PDF files:

  • Open the Document password
    Users must enter this password, sometimes referred to as the user password, before they can open the document to which it applies.
  • Change Security Options password
    Users must enter this password, sometimes referred to as either the master or owner password, if existing security options are to be changed. It is advisable to set this password, as if it is not set, anyone who opens the file could then remove any restrictions that might apply to it.

Passwords can be changed or deleted. However, passwords cannot be recovered from the document should you forget them.

When changing a documents security it is important that you are aware that while SecuritySetter is able to make the changes you require, the remaining tools in the Master Toolbox, and many of Acrobats functions too, require you to perform a Save As operation before these tools/functions can be informed of the changes made with SecuritySetter. Under Acrobat Version 5, it is often necessary to perform a Save As before your changes become visible. Under Acrobat 6 you are also advised to perform either a Save or a Save-As operation to ensure that security modifications are fully understood by Acrobat before proceeding with other operations.
