Saving PDF Security override by gmail
Dear sir or madam,
I've noticed as i saved PDF in CS6 to send to a Client and i used password protection with no permissions (printing, copying....)
And the thing is, if you open the email att. in this case My protected PDF in gmail preview - you can print it with no problems. And if you print to a PDF file, you get the same PD minus the Password protection.
I think this could be a big issue.
So i see google's gmail now as an easy fool proof password hack tool.
hope i helped somehow with this.
I am closing the ticket due to lack of response.

If you have set password only to restrict Editing,Security and Permission settings then its preview will be shown in Gmail.If you don't want to show preview then you need to apply password on Open the Document as well.
Please let us know if Gmail Preview get visible even after applying the password on Open the Document.
