As some Adobe PDF files may contain sensitive content for businesses and publications, document administrators are given the option to password protect the file so that only the administrator may copy, print or edit the file. If you so choose, you can use your administrator password to "unprotect" the PDF document so that anyone may alter the content. Removing the PDF file's encryption is a very simple process and can be accomplished in a very short amount of time.
