Password protection?

In Word, there are two types of password protection and you can use one or both. You can add a password to your documents to:

  • Control who can open them, and/or

  • Control who can edit them.

If you decide to use passwords:

  1. Keep them in a safe place. Word can't recover them for you if you forget them.

  2. You will need them to use AuthorTec File Doctor to update or remove passwords.

Luckily, you now know that, and AuthorTec File Doctor will help you keep things shipshape.
