editor's review




Free Decrypt PDF is an intuitive and user-friendly piece of software whose main purpose is to help you eliminate the restrictions placed on your PDF files, enabling you to work with them whenever and however you may need.

Basic yet practical looks

The utility offers a rather basic appearance, with no particularly attractive features about it, but its simplicity might prove appealing to inexperienced individuals, as you will not need to spend too much time figuring out how to work with it properly.

The main window allows you to add the source documents individually or in batch, by loading a whole directory into Free Decrypt PDF.

Input the owner password to get rid of PDF usage restrictions for good

Upon adding the files, the application will prompt you to input the owner password for each document at a time, even if, for instance, multiple items share the same passkey. In addition, bear in mind the fact that restrictions can only be removed if you already know the password locking the PDFs, otherwise the tool is not able to detect it on its own and get rid of it.

After loading all the files you wish to process, you can choose the destination folder and press the ‘Convert All’ or ‘Convert Selected’ button, depending on the situation. The exported files keep the original name yet also get a “_decrypted’ suffix.

The program’s role resides in removing usage restrictions, not in decrypting passwords, despite what its name might suggest. As such, make sure you already know the access key for your PDFs, otherwise this tool will not be able to help you in any way.

A simple tool for gaining you full access to PDF files

To sum it up, Free Decrypt PDF is a handy application aiming to assist you in removing usage restrictions from your Portable Document Format files, so you can copy, print or edit them without too much effort.
