Password Protect Your Files

Did you know you can password protect your Word and Excel files? This prevents anyone without the password from being able to view the contents of the file. To do so, open the document or spreadsheet in Word or Excel, respectively. Then click File > Info > Protect Document/Workbook > Encrypt with Password. You will then be prompted to enter your desired password twice. And now no one will be able to view the contents of that file without the password. Be warned, though! There is no “reset password” option for this feature. If you forget the password you will be unable to regain access to the contents of the file.
