    What is the point of password protecting a file to prevent printing, image extraction etc, when an app for $4.99 can remove the protection in seconds? I bought Cisdem last night because I could not believe the risk I was at, and was shocked!!!

      I was flabbergasted to see that all along, when I thought it was safe to send PDF files to clients with Password protection to stop printing, changes and image extraction - well, it is not. That security feature may as well be removed from Acrobat as it is worthless. The question remains, how do you showcase your work safely now?

       

      The only way I can see immediately, is to open the PDF as a low res image in Photoshop. It will not look so good when the client views it, but they can't do too much with a fuzzy pixel based image.

       

      Has Adobe acknowledged this huge hole in security? Anyone?
