There was a time I preferred installing apps on my laptop to perform all essential tasks. Not anymore. Thankfully, we are safely past the era of slow Dial-up connections, which means we can do so much more online instead of slowing down our computers using resource hogging apps. Furthermore, many new and robust web apps have made it easier for us to make good use of our smartphones for performing tasks which previously required turning on the computer.

Unlock PDF

It is worth mentioning here that when unlocking documents you will require entering the password. I tried unlocking a file without entering a password and it didn’t work. However, I was able to remove password protection by entering the password. In other words, don’t expect ILovePDF to crack PDF passwords. All it can do is to remove password protection so you don’t have to enter a passwords each time you open the PDF.
