Forgot your PDF’s password? Not to worry about.

We’ve developed a PDF password remover that helps you get rid of the password which locked you out of accessing the file.

On this page, you’ll be able to upload your PDF and remove its password. Then, you can update the password to one that’s easier to remember, or you can remove it.

For now, let’s see what we can do if you’ve forgotten your PDF’s password.

Can I open a PDF if I forgot the password?

Yes, you can open a PDF if you forgot the password by uploading it in our PDF unlock tool, confirming that you have access the right to see the file, and removing the password. Then set a new one or leave the file unlocked.

How to remove PDF password if you forgot it

This method is 100% free and way easier than reseting your Adobe PDF password, as you may need to pay for Adobe‘s apps just to unlock your PDF.

Simply upload your PDF document in the box below and click the button to remove the password. Validate that it’s you who owns the file, and then access it.

  1. Drag & Drop your PDF in the box below.
  2. Tick the box to confirm you have the right to edit the file.
