Windows 7: Office 2010 - Disable "encrypt with password" using Group Policy?

Office 2010 - Disable "encrypt with password" using Group Policy?

Hi all,

I would like to disable the "encrypt with password" option using Group Policy. Where I work using this option is a disaster waiting to happen (users lose passwords all the time).

You can find this setting in Word - goto FILE, INFO, PROTECTED DOCUMENT, ENCRYPT WITH PASSWORD. I've noticed this is in other parts of office (excel etc.).

I have a .ADMX template in AD to manage Office 2010 - is there any way to disable this for the entire Office 2010 suite?

Any and all help greatly appreciated,
Rob

Hi Sternfan,

You can disable user name and password from Group policy location : Microsoft Office 2010 (Machine)\Security Settings\IE Security

You can change the setting using below options:

User-specific policy settings: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\14.0
Computer-specific policy settings: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\14.0

Regards
Marshal Hubs
