Foxit Reader is application software for creating, viewing, and signing PDF files. The software is a less resource-demanding, simpler, and faster alternative to the Adobe software package. It is compatible with modern operating systems, such as Windows (10 and earlier), for which it is issued for free, and other OS. It can be used on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices. It has a simple and easy-to-use interface with a customizable tool panel. -

In the latest versions, the software uses cloud services:

  • Connected PDF Security provides and restricts access to a document;
  • Connected PDF Document Management tracks access to documents and operations performed with them, and notifies users of changes;
  • Connected PDF Collaboration allows multiple requests to be sent for access to a file and to review it.


    FoxitReader creates PDF files by either importing information from Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Excel or by scanning paper documents. The obtained PDF files correspond to industry standards and fully meet the requirements of other apps designed to work with this format.


    Files can be viewed in different modes, including continuous scrolling mode, and scaled. Document orientation can be changed from portrait to landscape and vice versa.

    FoxitReader is compatible with the JAWS tool, which enables voice commands. So, blind and visually impaired users can read the screen either with a text-to-speech output or by a refreshable Braille.


    The software allows you to add images and photos to a PDF file, fill empty fields, add and edit bookmarks and comments, and manage electronic signatures.


    The contents of PDF files are protected by electronic signatures and the above-mentioned cloud technologies, which provide additional security and control access to them.
