There is a password protection for them otherwise just create an MDE
for distribution (keeping the MDB for development).

But, you should be aware that the concensus opinion of experienced Access
developers is that they can recreate a database application in very little
time if they can observe the user interface in operation. That is a
concensus opinion with which I am in agreement, just for the record.

That's not to say you shouldn't use MDE, but only that you shouldn't believe
it will _really_ "protect you from having your application stolen".
