Bluebeam Tip: Securing PDF Documents with Permissions and Passwords in Bluebeam Revu

Ensuring the security of your PDF documents is crucial when sharing sensitive information. Bluebeam Revu provides a comprehensive set of features that allow you to control who can view and modify your documents. Here's how you can secure your PDFs with permissions and passwords:

  • Document Permissions: You can restrict how users interact with your PDF by setting permissions. To do this, go to the Document menu, select Security, and then Permissions. From there, you can control the ability to print, copy text and images, and modify the document.
  • Password Protection: Adding a password to your PDF file adds a level of security that requires users to enter a password to open the document. Set this up by accessing the Security tab under the Document menu and selecting Password Security.
  • Encrypting File Data: Encryption is crucial for protecting your data from unauthorized access. Bluebeam Revu uses the latest encryption standards to secure your PDFs.
  • Setting Different Passwords: You can set two types of passwords: a Document Open password that users must enter to open the document, and a Permissions password that restricts users from changing security settings.

Remember that the security features are only effective if they are used properly. Always keep your passwords confidential and consider using a password manager to generate and store strong, unique passwords.
