How can I protect my PDF documents with a password?

PDF encryption requires Genius Scan+.

If you are rather looking to prevent people from accessing Genius Scan, please check our  tutorial on passcode lock.

When you export a PDF document, Genius Scan lets you protect it with a password. PDF documents protected by a password are encrypted and can only be read with the password. 

The encryption used is RC4 with a 128-bits key.

There are two ways of setting up a password for your PDF documents:
