How to Enable Signature in Reader from PDF Form created in Adobe Acrobat Pro X

How to Enable Signature in Reader from PDF Form created in Adobe Acrobat Pro X

(OP)
I have a form that will be available online to fill out then save a copy. I saved the pdf from Acrobat using the extended reader using additional features, which says it will allow "sign an existing signature field" AND "digitally sign the document anywhere" but when I open it with Reader X and click the SIgn, I get this message"

The security settings on this document prevent adding text and/or placing a signature on it from Reader.

I specifically saved it so this could be possible but why is it not allwoing it? I checked the properties of the pdf in reader and under the security tab > signature is set to ALLOWED. The security method is None.

Totally confused.
