Instructions and Help about How to Password Protect A PDF File
Every now and then we hear that someone got into somebody’s mailbox, hacked into a database or stole private account information. Any user of this or that cloud storage can pose a perfectly valid question: ‘Are my documents safe?’ or ‘What measures can I take to protect my sensitive information?’ Our answer to the first question is unconditionally affirmative, and if this is not enough, you can additionally protect your documents with two-factor authentication in your Encrypted folder. To activate the Encrypted folder, select it in MYBOX and enter your cell phone number.
You will immediately receive an activation code via text message. Enter the activation code and click Verify to create a password.
Create and confirm your password to open the folder.
To add documents to the Encrypted folder, drag them from any other folder. After you’ve finished working with your protected documents, close the Encrypted folder by clicking the key icon. It will also automatically lock after 10 minutes of inactivity.
To access the documents in the Encrypted folder, you will have to enter your password again.
