What do you mean by "a basic Adobe account"? What Adobe applications do you have access to?
I have Abrobat Reader DC. When I go to "Tools" I have access to a number of the tools but the "Protect" tool give me the option to Add or Learn More. Neither option does anything when clicked.

No, it's not possible with Reader.
You need Adobe Acrobat Standard or Pro to do that.
I appreciate the help.
