You can help prevent unauthorized users from opening a document or from modifying a document even if they have permission to open it. Word doesn't encrypt the data that is hidden in a document.
Open the document that you want to help protect.
On the Word menu, click Preferences.
Under Personal Settings, click Security .
In the Password to open box, type a password, and then click OK.
In the Confirm Password dialog box, type the password again, and then click OK.
Click Save .
To remove a password, select all contents in the Password to open box, and then press DELETE.
