Password Protected Word Document for Confidential Files

Hi Fellow Mums,

For those of you who are using Microsoft Word regularly, perhaps you are already familiar with this topic but I'd like to share this idea to our fellow mums who haven't tried saving their word document with a password.

Ok, so there are times when we have to put a password on a document we created in MS Word purely because of confidentiality reasons. So you'll start by creating the document itself and then follow the steps below:

1) Once you're finished with your document, click File (top left), Save As

2) On the next screen, click Tools at the bottom, then General Options

3) Enter the password and click Ok.

4) When sending / sharing the file with others, make sure you share the password only to the intended recipients / readers.

Quick and easy. I hope you find this helpful! Thank you for reading.
