PDF files often arrive with password protection which we all receive either as a bank statement or a bill. The whole idea of it is to provide safety by keeping the sensitive and salient information secure. Although it is safe for us, the idea ends up creating a bother to the most. We constantly need to type the pin each time to access the information or to pass it to someone else.
Nevertheless, we’ve got you covered here! We have wrestled our way to provide some kind of workaround in order to solve this issue so that you no longer have to repeatedly type the password to access the document.
Before we tell you the methods, keep in mind that to make the hacks work, you need to authorize them at least once. This verifies that the information isn’t being accessed by someone with harmful intent. Therefore, before following, ensure if you are available with a correct password or not.
How to remove password from PDF files in Android, iOS, Google Chrome, and Mac?
