I need to send a PDF link to be oppened in ios mobile devices and the user devices be forced to open the file in Acrobat. Is there a way to do this? It is needed because I am using an encrypted tool that only works on mobile acrobat.

Hi CGallegos,

 

Ad you need that the recipients open PDF only on Adobe Acrobat Reader mobile application, it is not possible.

You cannot set a PDF to be opened in a particular application. 

 

Hope the information helps.

Let us know if you have any questions. 

 

Regards,

Meenakshi

You cannot do this as the sender.

Even the receiver cannot set a default.

iOS always uses its default reader. (It's possible for a single app such as an email app to work differently, I don't know if any do).

Your users will need training in how to do this for each receiving app.
