Adobe Acrobat Is Scanning Your Documents

The generative AI features in Adobe Acrobat are scanning your documents! This could possible lead to sensitive data leakage.

You can turn this feature off through the windows registry.

“Go to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\DC\FeatureLockDown create a new dword key under feature lockdown, bEnableGentech

1 will enable the feature, 0 will disable the feature and remove all entry points”

You can also disable the generative AI features in Adobe Acrobat with PowerShell.
