We receive password protected bank statements, credit card statements, mobile bills and salary slips every month.
It is for security purpose, such that only you can open and view it and no other can. But, each PDF file has a different password so it’s impossible to remember all of them
So here I am going to use the simple method to remove Password protected PDF Files without any software.
You will be quite surprised to know that you can actually use your web browser as PDF password remover tool.
We can remove password from any sort of PDF Files using the two built-in features PDF Writer and PDF Reader of Google Chrome.
Let’s see how:
1. Drag any password protected PDF file into your Google Chrome browser
If it doesn’t work, right click on the PDF file and choose open with option. Then select your browser from the list.
2. Google Chrome will now prompt you to enter the password of the file. Enter the password and hit Enter to open the file.
3. Now go to the File menu in Google Chrome and choose Print (or press Ctrl+P on Windows or Cmd+P on Mac).or Right click on the file and hit print.
4. Choose the destination printer as “Save as PDF” and click the Save button.
Choose the printer as “Microsoft Print to PDF” and click on print. It will prompt for the location to save the files.
Google Chrome will now save the PDF to your desktop but without the password protection. If you re-open this PDF in Chrome, it would no longer require a password to open.
