Now, if you're actually asking about how to protect a PDF with a password using the Acrobat Reader mobile app ( so that no one can open it),  that is a new feature that was introduced in the last update.

If you're using the Acrobat Reader mobile app in an iOS device, open a PDF file and see if you get the following options (see slides below; at least in Android this is a new feature that was introduced in the last Acrobat Reader mobile app update):
