Default Protecting Online Forms

If I lock an online form but do not password protect the document,
can't a user just unlock the form?

Yes they can. But even if you do password-protect the form, you still have
no real protection. Even a beginner can just re-type the document. Word
passwords are only to prevent inadvertent changes. They don't provide
security.

Not even necessary to retype: a protected form can be inserted in a blank
document using Insert | File, which removes the protection.

For totally hiding you files or folders you can use HideIt!

Brilliant suggestion! Or for perfect security, just delete the damn thing
completely.

But unless you have time and money you don't know what to do with, stay away
from crappy software like HideIt. Sailor's fatuous post gives you an inkling
of the quality of thinking behind it.
