The PDF Secuity tab holds all PDF security settings including file encryption, file permissions and password protection .
By default this setting is disabled. Enabling this setting means PDF Image Printer will create secure PDF files.
By default, the encryption level is set to 128-bit AES, which is supported by all recent version of Adobe Reader. If you only need to support Adobe Reader 9.0 or higher we recommend using 256-bit AES encryption as this is an even better encryption algorithm.

Enable this setting to require anyone opening this file to type in the password you specify. Hold the eye icon to unmask the password you have typed.
Enable this setting to require anyone making changes to this file to type in the password you specify. Hold the eye icon to unmask the password you have typed.
