editor's review





iSafePDF is a software application that provides users with a simple means of protecting their PDFs with a password, insert a signature and edit particular information.

The conveniences of a portable app

You are not required to go through the installation process, as this product is portable. Consequently, the Windows registry and hard drive are not going to suffer any changes, and no remnants are going to be left behind after its removal.

Another important aspect is that you can take iSafePDF with you anywhere and run it on any PC, by simply copying the program files to a USB thumb drive and clicking the EXE.

Upload a PDF and edit metadata

This tool is built with several tabs which let you quickly access all available options and perform multiple operations. A PDF can only be uploaded using the built-in file browser, as the “drag and drop” feature is not supported.

It is possible to input information about a document, including details such as author, title, subject, keywords, creator and producer, with just a few clicks.

Create signatures and restrictions, and input a passkey

In addition to that, it supports a multi-signature documents and you can append a PFX or P12 certificate signature to it, or a time stamped one along with TSA URL, login and password.

Encrypting PDF files is also possible with the help of a user and owner password, while you can also create various restrictions, such as copying, filling in, modifying annotations and contents, printing and screen readers.


To sum up, iSafePDF is a pretty efficient piece of software when it comes to protecting and signing your PDFs. The response time is good and the layout is suitable to all user categories. It does not put a strain on the computer’s performance, as CPU and memory usage is low, and we did not uncover any errors, hangs or bugs during our tests.
