How to Put Password to a Word Document


Microsoft Word offers a large number of editing tools to customize your document. You can share Word documents with other users for feedback. This can lead to a situation where unwanted changes are introduced to a document, or an unwanted individual may have access to it. You can use Word's security features to add a password to your document, which will prevent anyone without the password from editing it.

  • Launch Microsoft Word. Click "File" at the top left corner of the window, then click "Open" to find your existing document and open it.

  • Click the "File" tab at the top left corner of the window with the open document.

  • Click "Info" on the left side of the menu.

  • Click the "Protect Document" icon in the center of the menu to expand a drop-down menu, then click "Encrypt With Password."

  • Type a password for the document into the "Password" field, then click "OK."

  • Type the password again into the "Re-enter Password" field. Click "OK."

Tips & Warnings

  • If an unwanted person acquires the password for the document, you can return to the "Encrypt With Password" screen and set a new password.
