Free PDF Password Remover is a neat and handy application that helps you unlock the PDF documents that come with password-based protection regarding their printing, editing and copying rights. In other words, this small freeware helps you quickly remove passwords and restrictions from PDF documents.

To avoid any confusion you should take note that this simple utility requires you to specify the user password of each document (the password used for opening them), when such passwords are present, in order to process these documents, but it doesn’t require you to specify the owner passwords (the password used for setting permissions regarding content copying, high resolution printing, modifying the documents, et cetera), if they’re present. Other than that, there’s not much to say about this tool. It’s not only small and lightweight, but also simple and easy-to-use. Even complete beginners can use it without any problem. Furthermore, its interface is multi-lingual and supports a large variety of languages. You can also choose the output location of the processed documents.

Another good thing about this neat application is the fact that it can process multiple files at the same time, in batches. This helps you save a lot of precious time, especially since its processing speed is remarkably fast.

In conclusion, this free tool is worth trying whenever you need to clean PDF files of their assigned passwords.
