5 steps to remove password from a PDF file:

17 marzo, 2023

Open the PDF file in Adobe Acrobat: Launch Adobe Acrobat and open the PDF file that is password-protected. If you don’t have Adobe Acrobat, you can use an online tool such as SmallPDF or PDF Unlock to remove the password.

Enter the password: When you open a password-protected PDF file, you will be prompted to enter the password. Enter the password that you used to encrypt the PDF file and click “OK”.

Save the file as a new PDF: Once you have entered the password and opened the file, go to “File” and select “Save As”. Choose a new name for the file to avoid overwriting the original file and save it as a new PDF document.

Choose “No Security”: In the “Save As” dialog box, click on “Security Options”. This will open a new dialog box where you can set the security options for the PDF file. Choose “No Security” from the drop-down menu and click “OK”.

Save the file: After setting the security options to “No Security”, click “OK” to close the dialog box. Then, click “Save” to save the new PDF file without a password.

That’s it! Your new PDF file should now be password-free and accessible without any restrictions. It is important to note that removing the password from a PDF file may be a violation of the document owner’s rights or the privacy of the content. Be sure to only remove passwords from PDF files that you own or have permission to access.
