Here’s a quick step-by-step guide to show you how to password protect any Pages, Numbers or Keynote file with a password. Perfect for keeping your files even more secure!
Open up the file you wish to protect. Make sure you are within Pages, Numbers or Keynote. Then click on the Inspector icon (i). It’s in the toolbar on the right hand side.
Click on the the top left icon within the Inspector. This is the ‘Document’ inspector. At the bottom of the window check/tick the box labels ‘ Require a password to open’.
Enter a new password twice and choose a hint in case you forget.
Save your file and your done! Next time (and everytime) you open this file, you will need to enter the correct password before you can view and edit it.
