Word 2010 allows users to create written documents on their computer with countless customisation features. There may come a time when you wish to add security to a document to prevent others from reading the personal or sensitive material contained within. This can be accomplished by encrypting the document with a password, meaning that anyone attempting to open the file must enter the correct keychain to access it. Users can also remove security from the Word 2010 document similarly to how they added it.
