You can use the Amazon Kindle to read several document types, including text files and PDFs. Many people like to use PDFs for private documents because they have the ability to set a password. Only people who know the password can open the document. As long as you know the password, you can read most password-protected PDFs on the Kindle.
Press the "Home" button.
Scroll through the documents on your Kindle to find the password-protected PDF you want to read. Click on it.
Enter the password when prompted. Press the "Return" key.
Tips & Warnings
- Older versions of the Kindle firmware could not handle password-protected PDFs. If you have difficulty, leave the Kindle's wireless capability on overnight. If a firmware upgrade is available for your Kindle model, it should download and install.
