Microsoft Office is the most commonly used platform for word, excel, PowerPoint and docx format files. Well, there are a lot of features in Microsoft Office which are unfamiliar to the common people. One of them is to protect or encrypt your documents with a secure password but most of the people don't know how to do that. Password protects your most important and private documents which you don't want to share with anybody and prevents unauthorized access. This guide is for Microsoft Office 2013 Professional Edition and you are required to do the same in other versions of Microsoft Office with a little bit of changing.
