From the Adobe Acrobat online services page, select the tool you want to use and follow the how-to steps. Note that Acrobat online services upload your files to Adobe Document Cloud. If you sign in to use a tool or to save or share a file, Acrobat will save your file to your Adobe Document Cloud account. If you don't sign in, even if you download the file, Adobe deletes it from its servers within a short time period to respect your privacy.
Without signing in with an Adobe ID, most tools let you complete one free transaction and download the resulting file one time.
If you sign in with an Adobe ID, you can share, fill, sign, and comment on PDFs for free. When you sign in, you can also try other premium tools. See below for free limits.

Acrobat Web and Extensions offer one free transaction. There are a few tools that you can't try without signing in.
If you sign in with an Adobe ID, you can fill, sign, share, and add comments to files for free. To try other premium tools when signed in, free users are subject to the following limits:
- When trying premium tools, you can make one free transaction every 30 days on a rolling basis. For example, if you sign in for the first time on any given day and use the Convert PDF to Word tool, you've used one free transaction for the current 30-day period. If you access the Compress PDF tool 15 days later, you can't use it as you've already consumed your free transaction for the current 30-day period. To use a premium tool for free again, you must wait until the end of the 30 days.
- Request e-signature transactions may be subject to extra limitations.
When you reach free limits, you'll be notified online.
