Learn how to save a Keynote file with password protection.
When to use
Sometimes we work with information that we consider to be sensitive or confidential that requires an extra measure of security. In this lesson, we’ll learn how to add that security to our Keynote files.
In some cases, we may want to consider adding password-protection to a Keynote file, instead of just a PDF file. This gives others the option to make edits to a Keynote file in a secure way.
PDF files are static and not designed to be edited.
To add password protection to a Keynote file:
- go to File > Set Password…
- set your password (with verification)
- add a password hint (optional but recommended)
To change or remove a password from a Keynote file:
- open the password-protected file
- go to File > Change Password…
- change the password or click the “Remove Password” button
The password set for the sample file is “123”.
