Secure PDFs: stop people sharing your instructions

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

estatecreate has introduced the ability to encrypt PDFs when they are added to a site. This allows you to:

  • Give automatic access to people you select;
  • Revoke reader access at your discretion;
  • Prevent readers passing unlocked documents to unauthorised individuals;
  • Stop readers distributing hard copies by watermarking the document with your logo and the reader’s email address.

Encrypting PDFs gives you improved tracking

Encrypted PDFs allow you to track:

  • Opens – number of times a document is opened;
  • Duration – how long readers keep a document opened;
  • Page Views – which pages readers view;
  • Page Duration – how long readers spend on each page.
How do I get this functionality?
Encrypted PDFs are included as an option when we set a site up for you. There is no additional charge.
