PDF Protection Remover is a simple and handy application that lets you remove the security restrictions from encrypted and password-protected PDF files. It doesn’t crack unknown passwords, but it lets you remove known assigned passwords from large batches of PDF documents. Besides removing the passwords, this powerful application can also remove the protection (decrypt) that was assigned to PDF documents to prevent actions such as copying, editing, or printing.

Since the previously reviewed version, PDF Protection Remover has improved quite a lot, especially when it comes to reliability. It managed to remove the passwords and the restrictions from the loaded PDF files without any problem.

PDF Protection Remover is also easy-to-use. Its simple, neat and intuitive interface can be used with ease by anyone. Dragging-and-dropping the PDF files to be processed onto its interface is also possible.

This handy tool also supports different types of encryptions, including 40-bit RC4, 128-bit RC4, 128-bit AES and 256-bit AES encryption. Cutting long story short, though it can’t help you recover or crack forgotten, lost or unknown passwords, this nice tool offers a really convenient solution to “decrypt” protected PDF documents.
