ABC to Remove Passwords from your PDF Files !

September 3, 2011

You have a bunch of PDF files on your computer that are protected by a long and complex password. You know the passwords but it still feels inconvenient and boring typing them each time you have to open a PDF file. 

Is there a tool available that can remove password protection from PDF files? Someone asked me this question on Twitter the other day and the answer is obviously yes.

Removing Password from a PDF File

There’s a free Windows utility called BeCyPDFMetaEdit that can help you remove passwords from PDF files* but without make any other change to the document. (I am not sure why the developers picked such a complex name for this useful utility).

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Launch the program and it will ask your for the location of the PDF file.

2. Before you select and open the PDF, change the mode to “Complete Rewrite.”

3. Switch to the Security tab and set the “Security System” to “No encryption.” Click the Save button and your PDF will no longer require a password to open.

[*] If you would like to test this tool but do not have a password-protected file, use this sample PDF (the password is labnol).

A Nice message to be learnt ! 🙂

There was a gentleman walking with two heavy suitcases in an airportterminal. Someone approached and asked him what time it was. The gentleman bends down to park the two heavy suitcases and stare at hiswatch. But this was no ordinary watch! He touches a tiny button and hisadministrative assistant’s face appears.
He asks her, “Mary, what time is it?” Mary answers instantly and with a smile!

The questioner is thoroughly impressed!!!

He asks, “What kind of a watch is that?”

“It’s like a TV with two-way real-time communication,” the gentlemanexplains. He adds that the watch is the latest technology with Intel’sbrand new 128-bit chip with processor speed of 10 Gigahertz.

The onlooker is now quite impressed and wanted to know if he could buythis watch from the gentleman. They agree on a heavy price and the cashwas handed immediately. The gentleman takes his watch out and hands itover and then walks away.

The new owner stares at the two heavy suitcases and shouts, “Sir, you forgot your suitcases.”

The gentleman stops, smiles, and replies, “No, they are yours now. Theyare the modems you always need to carry for your new watch.
