PDF Password Remover easily decrypts PDF files.

PDF Password Remover decrypts PDF passwords and removes security restrictions on most PDF files. Once decryption is complete, you can copy, print and edit password-protected PDF files.


When you create a PDF you have the option to restrict copying, printing, editing, and other functions with a password - but what do you do if you have forgotten or lost your password?

That is where PDF Password Remover comes in handy! PDF Password Remover features a GUI for everyday use and command line options for power users. From decrypting passwords and removing restrictions on printing, copying and editing, this program can handle it all.

What else can it do?

  • Automatically repair damaged PDF files (limited)
  • No alteration to the original PDF file
  • Supports both 40-bit and 128-bit RC4 password decryption
  • Drag and drop files to convert

It is important to understand that PDF Password Remover can only decrypt “Owner Passwords” on editing the document. “User Passwords”, also known as “Open Passwords”, may not be decrypted with this program.


Run the setup file and installation is completed in a few seconds.
