Each one of us spends a lot of time on computers these days. Almost all of our work has turned digital today. We record our work in documents, presentations and worksheets available through various softwares providing help in performing office related activities. A majority of computer users, use Microsoft office software suite to manage their documentation. Most of us share our computers with two or more people and sometimes each one of us feels the need for an important document to be secured from access by others.
Microsoft office provides us a great option to password protect our documents if required, but very few of us know how to use this feature. I m going to tell you how we can use Microsoft office inbuilt feature to password protect your documents.
Type watever important information you want to type on your document and then click save or save as option in main menu.
General Options message box will ask you to provide two passwords. One is ‘Password to open’ and another is ‘Password to modify’. Specify both the passwords and press OK.
MS word will ask you to re-confirm ‘Password to open’ first,
and then It will ask you to re-confirm ‘Password to modify’ as well.
After re-confirming both passwords you can close the document and exit MS word. That’s it, your document will now become a password protected document and MS Word will ask for ‘password to open’ and ‘password to modify’ if somebody tries to open it.
