Remove passwords from PDF files

A very simple trick to remove passwords from your password protected PDF files so that you can forward them.

Open your password protected PDF file in Google Chrome. Now hit Ctrl + P and save password protected PDF file as, well, again a PDF file. This would save a copy without the password.


  1. I wish it would be that easy, you can prevent the output to become available when saving or printing.

    you need proper tools to remove the proper protection. I am not aware what tool(s) to use since they all mostly fail so far...

    1. Agreed. But if output is available while printing then it works like a charm :)
