Have you ever received a presentation that doesn’t allow you to make any changes? That could be a password protected presentation. Or, it could have been Marked as Final. Fortunately, Mark as Final is more of an administrative tool than a security tool. Its purpose is to make others aware that the author of the presentation doesn’t want others editing this work. First of all, you need to make sure that a presentation indeed has a Mark as Final attribute applied. To do that, check at the lower left area of the Status Bar at the bottom of the PowerPoint Interface. You should see the Mark as Final icon.

Do you need to share your presentations with others? If yes, it’s a good idea to make sure that your presentations are set to be read-only before you share them. To make your file read-only, you should look at the Mark as Final option in PowerPoint. Note that this option is not as restrictive as password protecting a PowerPoint presentation. The Mark as Final option tries to prevent users from typing, editing commands, and proofing. All editing options are disabled or turned off. However, do remember that Mark as Final is not a security feature and it can be easily reversed by the recipient of your file.
