This step-by-step tutorial can help walk you through the process of how to remove a forgotten PDF permissions password when you can still remember the document open password.

  1. To get started, download the PDF Password Recovery application. Follow the simple instructions in the installation wizard to complete the installation.
  2. After starting the program, click the button to choose your password protected PDF document, and then select the “Remove Owner Password” option. Click Next.

  3. You will be prompted for a user password (also known as document open password) when it detects your PDF document has both an open password and a modify password. Type the password and click OK.
