    I have a secured PDF file, It has very crucial information regarding my organization. Unfortunately the password for the PDF file is lost and I am unable to access the PDF file data. Please suggest a solution for my problem.

    Hi,

    The PDF files can be accessed by using the Adobe Acrobat software.
    Following are the steps:

    1. Launch Adobe Acrobat software.
    2. Open the file that is to be modified.
    3. Now, We have to turn on the advanced settings under the tool menu.
    4. After clicking the “tools“, Click on “Advanced Settings“, Now click on the “show advanced editing toolbar“.
    5. Now, The save the pdf file

    Your file will be unlocked.

    Regards

    Hi,

    I also tried the method you suggested sir Barry Allen.

    I was also unable to access the locked pdf file. Also, I think that Henry Davidson is right and this method is applicable for unlocking the pdf file for editing.

    Please suggest if there any other method for unlocking pdf files.

    Hi,

    I Agree that the method specified by sir Barry Allen is definitely for unlocking pdf file for editing.

    For Unlocking PDF files for access, It is mandatory that you should go for a third party software to remove pdf protection.

    As, there is no manual method available to unlock pdf files.

    Hope it will resolve your query.

    Thanks & Regards
