Password protection

To protect an entire document from being viewable without a password, use the option on the Save As dialog box to enter a password. This option is only available for files saved in OpenDocument formats or the older 1.x formats.

  1. On the Save As dialog box, select the Save with password option, and then click Save. You will receive a prompt.
  2. Type the same password in the Password field and the Confirm field, and then click OK. If the passwords match, the document is saved password protected. If the passwords do not match, you receive the prompt to enter the password again.
Image:documentation_note.pngPasswords must contain a minimum of 5 characters. Until you have entered 5 characters, the OK button remains inactive.
