HOW TO UNLOCK PDF FILES

Choose a file to unlock

Upload your password-protected file from your computer or a cloud storage service such as Google Drive or Dropbox. You can also drag-and-drop your file into the box.

Unlock your file

Enter the password used to restrict access to the file. If the password you entered matches the one created to lock the file, all restrictions to the file will be removed and you will be able to access it freely.

View and download

Once your file has been unlocked, you will be able to access it by downloading it to your computer and viewing it in your browser. We can also email you a link to your file, which will only be valid for 24 hours.

DID YOU KNOW?

You control the level of protection within your document

Your document may have been protected using different types of password restrictions. Some protections restrict access to the entire document, or specifically to certain actions, such as preventing the extraction of pages or the edition of the content in the document. Others limit access to certain capabilities, like only allowing users to create, insert, or delete pages. In some instances, password-secured permissions within documents only allow users to fill in forms, and can prevent individuals without passwords from copying or printing text.

Remove security from PDF

Our online PDF Password Remover tool allows you to lift any password secured restrictions within your document to unlock your PDF.

Edit your documents

You can share your file, without sharing your password! Removing PDF password protection allows you to share your PDF with someone else, without being required to disclose your password. The PDF can also be edited, either by yourself, or by the person you sent it to.

Change permissions

Once you have removed password protections and edited your document, you can use our Soda PDF Protection tool from our full online application to add a new password or change permissions.
