Hi,

You cant delete it inside Acrobat security settings as this requires the use of a password, however, if you can find the actual ID file on the computer, you can remove it from here.

On a mac, do a serch for .p12 and you will find it, on the PC look for a .pfx file.

As default they usually go in the 'security' folder nested inside your applications settings. On a mac its library-application support - Adobe – Acrobat – (Acrobat version number here) - security – digital ids. Its similar on a PC, i thing you should start of with 'C:Program files'

Hope this helps?

I would not delete your original digital certificate, you might remember the password. Also you should have a copy of the public key file for that certificate that will allow others to verify your digital signature.

You can create a new digital certificate. Also you might want to keep a paper with the password and keep it in a secure location like a safety deposit box in a bank but not under your desk light.
