How To Unlock PDF Documents Online

The last time I shared a PDF files related utility was how to extract images from PDF documents. This time its a free online tool that allows you to unlock a locked PDF document. Password-protected PDF documents prevent the user from copying and pasting or printing it’s contents.

Free PDF Unlock Online Utility is in beta stage, and easily removes the protection from a PDF file to view its content. You might need this tool in cases where the author has used a font which is not available by default in Windows.

You just have to upload your password-protected PDF file, and it will easily bypass the protection and allow you to copy/paste it. To unlock a PDF file, enter it’s location in the “PDF file to unlock” field, by either typing it in the field or clicking on the “browse” button, then navigating to it’s location.

The unlocked file will open in a new browser window, using the default PDF viewer application for your system (usually Adobe Acrobat Reader).
