One of the most useful characteristics of PDF files is that they can be protected by limiting the users' actions. Available security options allow you to protect your files from unauthorized edition, content copy, document printing or even visualization. But, what would happen if you just forgot the password to access an important PDF file? Don't panic! There are several applications that could help you get it back.
PDF Password Unlocker is one of those programs that can effectively help you regain access to your PDF.
The interface will help carry out the recovery process with ease. After choosing the file whose access you want to recover, you need to select your preferred recovery method: brute-force attack, brute force attack with mask or dictionary attack. The chosen method must depend on how much you remember about the password. For example, you may decide to use a mask when you remember part of the lost password. Then, you can just tell the application to begin the recovery process.
Although the software can crack the password really fast, you can activate the auto-save option so that you do not lose your progress. Another option will tell the software to automatically shut down your computer when the process has finished.
