Protection in PowerPoint 2013 2010 2007

Save your slides as pictures

If you want to make your presentation non-modifiable, you save it to *.pdf format or *.ppsx format (PowerPoint Show format - see Automatically show your presentation). However, if you want to publish the presentation on your personal or corporative Web site, the better option is to export slides as separate pictures.

Automatically show your presentation

Instead of opening your PowerPoint presentation file and then clicking F5 or using other ways to start the presentation, you can save your PowerPoint file in the PowerPoint Show format. Also, this format prevents changes in the presentation.

Protect presentation

If a presentation contains sensitive or confidential data, you can encrypt the file and protect it with a password.
Encryption is a type of "scrambling" done to the file so that nobody can see it, either from within PowerPoint or with any other type of file-browsing utility.
