Password for what?

What version of Office Word?
Usually you select all text, go to the 'Review' tab, click the 'Word Count' icon and you will have line counts there.

Sorry the the bad quality of the image (lol).

From Word Help - all you ever wanted to know (and more) about adding line numbers to your document......

Add line numbers

You can add line numbers to all or part of a document. To view line numbers, you must be in Print Layout view (View tab, Document Views group).

Notes
A table is counted as one line.
A figure is counted as one line.
A text box is counted as one line if it is positioned inline with the text on the page. If text on the page wraps around the text box, the lines of text on the page are counted. Lines of text inside a text box are not counted.

Add line numbers to an entire document
1.On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Line Numbers.

Note If your document is divided into sections and you want to add line numbers to the entire document, you first need to select the document. Click Select in the Editing group on the Home tab, and then click Select All. Or press CTRL+A.
2.Do one of the following:
To number consecutively throughout the document, click Continuous.
To start with number 1 on each page, click Restart Each Page.
To start with number 1 after each section break, click Restart Each Section.

Add line numbers to a section or to multiple sections
1.Click in a section or select multiple sections.
2.On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Line Numbers.

3.Click Line Numbering Options, and then click the Layout tab.
4.In the Apply to list, click Selected sections.
5.Click Line Numbers.
6.Select the Add line numbering check box, and then select the options that you want.

Remove line numbers

You can remove line numbers from the entire document, from a section, or from a paragraph.
1.Click in the document, or click in the section or paragraph from which you want to remove line numbers. If you want to remove line numbers from multiple sections, select the sections.
2.On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Line Numbers.

3.Do one of the following:
To remove line numbers from the entire document or section, click None.
To remove line numbers from a single paragraph, click Suppress for Current Paragraph.
