Encrypting parts of a Word document
These instructions cover how to encrypt parts of a document in Word. This means that different recipients will be able to decrypt the different parts of the document. If you want to allow all recipients to decrypt the entire contents of a document, see Encrypting an entire Word document.
- Create or open a Word document that you want to protect, open the Confidencial task pane, and log in if you have not already done so
- Click Encrypt Selection under the Settings menu (gear icon) of the Confidencial task pane
- Select content in your Word document that you want to protect
- Choose the recipients for whom you want to protect the selected content
Note that you are automatically added as a recipient, so you will always be to view any content that you protect
- Click Encrypt Selection
The selected content is now protected for your chosen recipients. Repeat Steps 3 - 5 to protect other parts of your document.
