Disable restricted operations on PDF at the touch of a button with pdf-Recover 4.0

PDF documents are heavily secured against access and tampering. This can be a problem if additions or updates need to be carried out, but the document’s password has been forgotten. Without the correct password, there is no access to the contents, and the entire form or document has to be rewritten. The pdf-Recover software product helps authors and users of protected documents by cracking the password – at the touch of a button.

Manufactured by UNIVERSE Software GmbH, a software house based in Solingen, Germany, pdf-Recover is an invaluable aid to anyone that needs to change security settings, document limitations, form field functions or presentation properties in a protected PDF document and cannot remember the master password.

Without this password, it is impossible to alter printing properties, copying permissions or input fields or any other basic document settings.

A single click of a button in pdf-Recover will remove the password, regardless of whether it has been encrypted using 40-bit RC4, 128-bit RC4 or even the latest 128-bit AES Adobe 8 Generation technology.

The result is an exact replica of the original PDF without any security settings whatsoever – pdf-Recover removes all of the restrictions implemented.

The program is available for Windows 95 and later, MacOSX and Linux, and costs €19,00 incl. VAT. A free trial version is available for download at
