This feature is usually used for documents that contain unauthorized content that should not be exposed to anyone.

Unlock − When a document is locked, it can be unlocked with the help of this feature. This helps unlock a document so that a set of actions can be performed on it. Only the user who has locked a document, can unlock it.
