How to Remove Password from PDF

Want to remove password from PDF but can’t find the right tool to do that? In this article, I’ll introduce you to PDFBear’s free Unlock PDF tool to decrypt your PDF files from passwords.

PDFs are protected with passwords for a reason. But once the cause has been fulfilled, you often need to remove the password from the PDF. And that’s where tools like PDFBear’s Unlock PDF come into play.

In this article, I’ll show how to remove passwords from PDF files. Also, why remove passwords from PDF, remove vs. hacking, and more. So without further ado, let’s get started.

Why Remove Password from PDF

Who doesn’t prioritize protection? Especially when it comes to documents that are only meant for a limited number of eyes. However, once the document has been freed from top-secret credentials, there comes the need to unchain it.

Imagine you have a set of company documents that were once meant only for some authorized people. Now, you are given the task to pass them on to everyone linked to your company. One way of it would be to send the documents with their designated passwords. Or, you can remove password from PDF files and pass them just like any other viewable file.

For instance, you are the editor of your school’s exam department. Of course, your PDF files would be protected from passwords until and unless they are finalized for printing. But once everything is set and done, you can’t just send them to the folks at the printing department with passwords. That’s where you would want to remove the password from PDF.

Removing Password Vs. Hacking Password in PDF

Removing passwords from PDF files doesn’t mean hacking; they are both two different things.

To remove a password from a PDF refers to eliminating the need to enter the password to view, edit and share the file. This means you’ll need to have access to the password in order to remove it from the PDF.

On the split side, hacking password in PDF means illegally trying to crack the password of a PDF file. We are strictly against this action as it’s completely against our terms & conditions and privacy policy.
