    Adding own password (to open) after bank has added Permissions password

    esterl

      Acrobat X

      Windows Vista Service Pack 2

       

      I receive my monthly bankstatements in PDF. My bank has already added a Permissions password to prevent me (and anyone else) from altering the data. I save the PDF file to my personal laptop harddrive. I want to add my own password (to open the saved file) to prevent anyone reading my personal data. However, Acrobat does not allow it, as the file already comes with the bank's Permission password (which I rightly do not have access to).

       

      How can I add my own 'to open' password AFTER the bank's Permissions password?

       

      If not possible, can Acrobat change the features to allow this in any future update?

       

      I do not want to save the file in the Cloud.
