Password security action - need to input password for every file?

I regularly need to add password security to PDF forms so have been looking into creating an action to do this in Acrobat - which I've successfully done. 

However, if I start this action on a batch of files it still asks me to input the password twice for each form. Am I doing something wrong or missing a setting? Not having to input the password over and over really was the draw card for this action!

 

Alternatively - is there another way I can create a droplet or batch preset to run forms? I'm quite limited in my tech knowledge so bare that in mind when suggesting options.

Thanks in advance!

Want you use the same password for all files?

Correct. I've set up the action to do so. It's asking for it again for every file when I run the action.
