If you work with PDF E-Books in your day to day life, you may have come across some PDF files which prohibit users from copying or printing its content. This happens when the creator imposes security restrictions on the file to prevent replication or unauthorized copying. If you want to quote a paragraph off a protected PDF, you are left with the pleasure of having to type the entire thing manually from scratch.

Don’t worry. There is a way around it. Free PDF Unlock Online Utility let you crack the protection on Secure PDF files and remove the print/copy restrictions enforced. You have to upload the PDF file to the service in order to do this. Once cracking is done, an unlocked file will be generated. Save this file to your hard disk and you have a copy of the original PDF with restrictions removed. Don’t believe it? Have a look at the screens below:

For some reason, I could not save the unlocked version when using Mozilla Firefox 3. The saved file appeared to be damaged. This issue however was not present when using Internet Explorer 7.

    Hello,

    A locked PDF file can contain two different types of protection. Owner protection restricts the editing and printing of the document. User protection is used when passwords are required to open the document. There are programs available on the Internet that can unlock the PDF, but some work with only one type of protection and not the other. Thank you...
