asked on

is there a way to protect a pdf file saved on a USB drive that will allow people to Print but no save a copy to another computer...?

my boss wants to share a pdf to another person, he will send the pdf file on a USB drive; my boss told me that he wants me to protect that file in order that his friend will be able to Print the PDF content but he can not save a copy on his computer...

how can i do that?

You cannot stop someone who can read a pdf from keeping a copy. You password protect, you can use preshared keys so only he can open it...etc etc. But if you give someone access, they have access. Thats a one way door.
