This page is about Recover PDF Password for Mac
PDF unlocker is the only PDF unlock Mac app that can recover "User" password to open the document
Generally there are two types of passwords that PDF document can be protected with: "Owner" and "User" ones. "Owner" password is aimed to protect the document from editing, copying or printing the PDF. "User" passwords protect the PDF from being opened at all. In case you forgot "User" password to open your PDF file, you will be having a hard time accessing the important contents of the document and many unlock PDF programs simply can't restore this type of password.
In order to unlock PDF password on Mac you can use one of the efficient search methods of PDF unlocker:
Password length and template
- If you can remember the approximate quantity of characters in the password, search by password length.
- If you can recall some of the characters your password consisted of, try searching by template. In this way unlock PDF password software will be only searching for the missing characters and will save you precious time.
If you can remember nothing about this password, brute-force search will serve you best. However this method is the most time-consuming, because it has to search for every single variation.
