Protect Word Export

Is it possible to protect the exported word document exported from DocIO similar to the functionality supported in Microsoft Word? We want to restrict the type of changes users can make to the exported document.

Hi Pawan,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

Word document protection support in Xamarin platform:
Since you have mentioned your platform as Xamarin, the Word document protection support is available in Xamarin platform. Please find the sample from the below link which illustrates how to enable protection in Word document.
Sample link:

Please refer to the following API documentation link to know more about Word document protection support.

Note: Currently, DocIO does not have support to
encrypt and decrypt the Word documents using password in Xamarin platform. We will include this feature in one of our upcoming release. We request you to visit our website periodically for feature updates.

Regarding Word document protection support in other platforms (Windows Forms, WPF, ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, UWP):
We have provided support to restrict Word document being edited like the Microsoft Word. Please refer to the below UG documentation link to know about Word document protection.

We have also provided support to encrypt and decrypt Word documents using password. Please refer the below UG link to know more about encryption and decryption.

Online Demo Link:
Please refer the following online sample link to know more about Word document protection.
