Batch PDF Decrypt
Batch PDF Decrypt is an approachable software application designed to decrypt PDF documents in batch mode, as the name clearly states.
It comprises a standard set of features that should be easy enough to figure out by all types of users, regardless of their previous experience with PDF processing software.
Quick setup and user-friendly GUI
The installation procedure is rapid and does not require special attention from the user. The app sports a clean and intuitive interface that enables users to add PDFs to the list using either the file browser, folder view or drag-and-drop support.
Shown information includes the source path, destination name and format, along with the status for each entry. It is possible to re-arrange items in the list, remove selected entries, as well as specify the output folder.
Decrypt with passwords or certificates
Decryption can be performed in two methods: by using a password or certificate. The latter one can be done as long as digital certificates are available in the Windows certificate store (you can import them with the help of Internet Explorer).
Performance and conclusion
The program does not put a strain on PC performance, since it runs on low CPU and memory. We have not come across any unpleasant surprises throughout our evaluation, as Batch PDF Decrypt did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. It carries out decryption jobs rapidly. Thanks to its intuitive GUI and options, the tool can be handled by all types of users.
