This instructable will tell you how to remove PDF password security and print, edit, copy, and extract a restricted PDF file.
PDF is a file format that is universally used because it can be opened using a number of different programs. Typically an individual does not have to download a special program in order to open up a PDF. This makes it an ideal file for an individual to use to send information. Depending on who you ask the fact that you can apply restrictions on PDF files that prevent people from being able to print, edit, and copy the file can be both a good and bad thing. What if you forget the password or are not able to gain access to the password? They may be a lot of reasons why you need to print, copy, or edit a PDF file and are not able to because you do not have the password.
