Easily encrypt and decrypt PDF documents.

Overview

PDF Protector is an easy-to-use utility to encrypt or decrypt your PDF documents.

Set a password and let PDF Protector encrypt your documents to hinder others from opening it. You can also set a separate password that has to be known by everyone who wants to copy or print content of your your document. Of cause PDF Protector also lets you remove any of these security mechanisms, providing you know the password. Since PDF Protector uses standard PDF functions, it works perfectly with other PDF applications. If you have to to encrypt or decrypt a lot of documents with the same password, you can set a default password to be used by PDF Protector.

As far as I know, Preview does not allow setting the PDF restrictions flags that allow you to prevent a user from printing or copying content. This is different than just setting a password and locking the entire PDF. Setting restrictions can be helpful to prevent blatant copying of data or forgery of documents, such as receipts, etc. --Although it appears that the restrictions function is fairly easily circumvented.
