I have forgotten my password on the digital signature option in the "fill and sign" section of Acrobat.

does anyone know how to recover and/or change it?

Hi Animals61,

Sadly, there is no way to recover the password used to protect your digital signature.

You will need to delete your digital signature and load in a new one.

Note:

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

Let me know if you need more help.

Thanks,

Supriya

Hi animals61

Please open the PDF in Acrobat, choose the "Certificate" tool from the "Tools".

Now choose "Digital Signature" at the top and drag the mouse over the document where you want to place the Digital Signature, a window will pop up with the option to create New Digital ID, please select it & proceed with the prompts to create a new Digital ID.

Make sure you memorize the password.

Regards,

Aadesh

I' am having the same issue in Acrobat Pro 17 but I am unable to delete the password without the password. Any ideas how to bypass that so I can delete the old signature?

I think I figured it out. If you go Edit - Preferences - Signature - Identities & Trusted Certificates - Add ID you can basically rewrite over the existing signture and create a new password at that time.
