How To Remove Password Protection From PDF Files

Ads by Google

Some PDF files come with restrictions that limit our work. We can’t print, copy or edit the content of an encrypted PDF file. And this could be the case even when you have the legal right to modify the document or copy from it (if you don’t have the legal right to do it then we won’t encourage you to do it either).

So in such situations, the best way out is to remove password-protection or encryption from the PDF document. And AnyBizSoft PDF Password Remover does exactly that.

AnyBizSoft PDF Password Remover is a free premium tool which removes encryption from PDF files. It removes all the basic restrictions on printing, copying and editing the content of PDF files. It also removes password protection, if any, from the file.


Here are the steps to do it.

How To Remove PDF file Restrictions

1. Open the tool.

2. To remove the restriction click on Add files button given at the top. You can add up to 200 PDF files for one batch processing.

    I see the System Requirement are: Windows XP/Vista/7 32bit.
    I remember at times some of these apps will work with 64 bit computers.
    Will this one?

    @Brian Since I am using 32 bit computer so I can’t exactly tell about compatibility of program with 64 bit.

    But most of the 32-bit version programs generally work on 64-bit version. Except some Antivirus software’.



    Thanks for the tip.

    I think it is worth a try!



    Yes, it does work on 64 bit!
    It is one great program!!!
    Thanks for the wonderful app.

    The program does run in Win 7 Pro, 64 bit.

    • Abhijeet

      Dennis, if you look carefully in the “Features” section of the article, it was mentioned that the free offer expires on Feb 24, 2010. And that’s what happened. The article is almost a year old in case you didn’t notice.

  • Jamyinner

    Probably it was the intention that you could not print it.
    So you have to go back to the source (if you are the owner) and create the PDF with other security options.
