|Description:||PDF stands for Portable Document Format and uses the .pdf file extension. It was invented by Adobe in 1993. For many years it has been one of the most commonly used file formats. The main aim of the PDF is to send important information to another person quickly and easily. PDFs can combine text and multimedia within one document, they work with nearly all hardware and operating systems.
|Technical Details:||PDF is a 7-bit ASCII file with a fixed layout. PDF uses the PostScript language, which makes it possible to display a range of text fonts, graphics and other media in a single, universal file. Some PDF documents have an encryption feature that will keep them from being read until whoever is opening the document provides a password.|
|Initial Release:||15 June 1993|
If a PDF document is password protected, you’ll have to enter the password each time you want to view the document. Password protecting a document is necessary for many reasons. For controlling access to the information specified in the document. Say, for example, your file is on a publicly-accessible source but contains confidential data that only certain individuals should have access to. In this case, you share the password you have specified for the document with a limited number of people. Another reason could be that establishing limited access to the document means protecting it from any possible changes. If you’re sending a contract to your stakeholders, you’ll want it to be printed and signed but not altered. You can let your partner peruse the document and be sure that it remains in its original form. One more case is locking forms that are used for filling via a link. Any user may accidentally or deliberately alter a form if it’s not locked.
Although locking files is definitely considered to be very useful, what are you going to do if something changes? You want to provide access to your document’s content and coding is no longer needed. Specifying a password is now one more unnecessary step. Accessing PDFs in a secure location is inconvenient. It goes without saying, that protected files are unavailable for editing or formatting.
