How It Works

Permanent Data Removal

Redaction in PDFs is a two-step process. First, you mark the content you wish to remove with redaction annotations. Second, you apply the redaction annotations, permanently removing the content from the marked regions.

Learn More

Mark Content

Your users can manually select content, or you can build a custom redaction template to mark areas for redaction. Enable built-in or add custom text-matching patterns as search criteria to quickly locate specific data.

Preview Redaction Annotations

Enable your users to preview the redactions on a document or share a document containing redaction annotations with other stakeholders before changes are applied.

Apply Redaction Annotations

Apply redactions programmatically or at the tap of a button to permanently and securely remove data from a document.
