The updates rolled out for Pages, Numbers, Keynote and iWork documents allows for an added layer of security to web sharing. According to CNET, to add a password to the iOS, iCloud or Mac version of the iWork app, a user open the respective document and tapping on the settings icon and select the ”Select Password”.
One can also choose to make the iOS app or Mac device to remember the password, however, a password for one device is specific to that device and there is no syncing across platforms or iCloud connected devices. The report said that adding a password on OS X is a little different, as a user doesn’t need to open the document, but instead click on File in the toolbar, followed by ”Set Password” option.
User can also select the Share icon, then ”View Share Settings” and set a password by selecting ”Add Password” for OS X. The updated features allow users to share password-protected iWork documents using an iCloud.com link and any changes made to an iCloud -shared document will sync across all devices, the report added.
