Using password protection

You can protect a map by assigning a password and saving the map. From then on, the map can only be opened by users who know this password.

To set the password for the current map:

  1. Choose File > File Info and click the Password tab.

  2. Enter the password to use for the map. Note that the password is case-sensitive.

  3. Select the "Add to keychain" checkbox if you want to store the password for the map in your keychain so you don't have to re-type it to open the map.

    Important: if you lose or forget this password and it hasn't been added to your keychain it cannot be recovered.

  4. Click OK.

  5. Choose File > Save to save the map. Password protection is not applied until the map is saved.

Be sure to record and store passwords that you don't add to your keychain in a safe place.

To modify or remove password protection for the current map:

  1. Choose File > File Info and click the Password tab.

  2. Modify or delete the password to use for the map and click OK

  3. Choose File > Save to save the map.
