Automatically Add Password to PDF using Workflows

Data security is always been a concern since the day communication has been happening. How much ever we securely store the data, it’s always best to add an additional security to it. When it comes to business documents, confidential documents in particular, it’s always best to protect them with a password. This can be automated with PDF4me’s automation Platform, Workflows.

Protect your important PDF files with a password and save them to cloud storage. Protection of the PDF file and privacy is needed in every possible instance of data transfer. Adding a Password to PDf is the best way to ensure the files are tamper-proof. PDF4me Protect PDF action in Workflows helps you to set a password to a PDF file on the go.
