Although Kindle does not create or edit the password in protected PDFs, it does provide its own security for storing your files. You can assign the entire device a password, which users must enter each time Kindle turns to sleep on or off. The password prevents others from accessing your eBooks, including personal compositions you have imported. Perhaps most significantly, the password prevents others from using your Kindle to make purchases through your Amazon account.
We are going to discuss the process of creating a password for your favorite eBooks on Kindle, and we will be providing instructions on three different Kindles, i.e., the initial Kindle models, Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Fire HD. If you are using any of these Kindle devices and want to understand the concept of password protecting your favorite eBooks, then you can check out the process from the section below.
