Viewing Protected PDF's

Oct 18, 2011 7:24 AM

My online school locks their PDF files using Protectedpdf by Vitrium Systems. These documents require Adobe Reader to login and unlock the document upon opening the file; however I'm unable to enter my user name and password into the document (doesn't support forms?). After entering my credentials they are validated via the internet with my school and the document is unlocked. Is this a feature that could be incorporated into a future release?

    Please share any sample PDF at to enable us to understand the problem better.

    University of Phoenix Virtium protected course materials I assume?  I'll send one to that email address too?

    Thank you for asking this question ltdr1ryder. I was trying to open an ebook from UOP and was getting really frustrated, but now I know it's not something that I am doing wrong. It sure would be nice to be able to view the ebooks from the iPad and hopefully adobe will fix this soon!

    Great...Thank you for this info ltdr1ryder! I'm with you on wondering why Adobe didn't integrate the feature in their app, but this is a way for them to make a few dollars. Thanks again I guess I will be getting Pro...Have a good day!
