PDF Security questions

I am writing to ask about Nitro PRo and PDF viruses.

I have disabled Javascript in Nitro to help stop PDFs that may have viruses in them.

But how can I be sure a PDF is safe or is there a Nitro Sandbox mode?
I am looking for old out of print books and found several sites like project gutenburg but I want to be sure the pdf's are safe.

Is there a safe way to open a PDF or to scan one for a virus or malware?

I know Adobe Acrobat Pro and Reader now has sandbox protection for PDF's to stop virus in pdf's.

Does Nitro have similar protection?


Thanks in advance

Hello Gren,

Thank you for reaching out to us through our Community Forums!

I'm sorry we do not have a similar feature. We suggest trying Adobe reader for this specific file.

Please let me know if you have other questions.
