How Adobe defines its PDF reader Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

If you’re looking for an efficient PDF reader today it’s due to the fact that Adobe invented this format and launched it on the market. In fact, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC remains the leading PDF reader even for Adobe's competitors. It is one of the programs that cannot be missing in your office software .

Adobe claims that its Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is not just a PDF reader, but the free global standard by which all products of this type are measured.

Its functions of this tool are to view PDF documents, print PDFs, sign documents with e-signature, comment on PDF files and share the content with other devices. You can share your documents in PDF using Dropbox, WeTransfer or whatever platform that you like.

In fact, as the manufacturer claims, it’s the only PDF reader that can open and interact with all types of content in this format. This includes multimedia content and forms. In addition, the Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is connected to Adobe Document Cloud services. This makes it easy for the user to work with PDF documents on any device and from any location.

Although the software is free, it also has a paid-for premium version that works by subscription.

The ‘protected mode’ of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for Windows

This PDF reader has a protected mode, which is nothing more than sandbox technology enabled by default. This prevents third parties from installing malicious software. It also blocks access to confidential data, as well as its extraction, whether from the computer itself or from the corporate network to which it was connected.

However, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC does not allow you to set up security or access privileges for the files. This can be done in Adobe Acrobat, whose security settings allow you to define who will be able to read, open, print, copy or modify each document. You can create passwords or enable the mode of access by means of a certified ID.

As for the Adobe Document Cloud services, yes, they are secure.
