Sometimes you want to hide sensitive information in a document to protect it before sharing with someone. It may be your phone, social security number, credit card or even a bank account number. PDF Expert has the best PDF redaction tool to help you protect your privacy. It allows you to erase or blackout sensitive numbers and parts from a document for good.
In PDF Expert, there are two types of redaction: Blackout and Erase. Blackout (default) removes the selected content and puts a black box in its place. Erase removes the text and leaves an empty space in its place.
Follow these steps to redact a PDF file:
To cancel the redaction, tap on the toolbar.
