Hi!

 

Hope you are doing well.

 

If you have forgotten the digital id password, then you can detach the digital id.

Navigate to Edit -> Preferences (Win), or Acrobat -> Preferences (Mac), then select Signatures -> Identities & Trusted Certificates -> More, Click on Digital ID Files, select the one you want to detach, and click Detach File. After that, you can delete the .pfx file.

Note:

You can delete only self-signed digital IDs that you created in Acrobat. A digital ID obtained from another provider cannot be deleted.

 

To know more about the Digital Ids, see this article: Manage Digital IDs

 

I hope this helps.

 

Thanks,

Anand Sri,

Please help! My mac does not show the exact same screen as you and so the options at the top look different.

 I don't know how to procede from here because I am unable to find the "detach file" option. I tried clicking Remove ID, but that still requires a password to continue.

Hello,

I have some forms that I've created where I want to prepare them in order for them to be fillable. It all works apart from the automatic Digital ID. How do I remove that? I want to give people the option of Digital ID or to just write their name.

 

Thanks in advance!
