The first thing to mention about this application is that it doesn’t remove the user password. This means that it can’t find out the password required for opening a particular PDF file. It only decrypts files that restrict you from copying, editing or printing.
It has a very simple interface, with a few options. In order to decrypt a file, you need to add a PDF by selecting the 'Add files' option or by using the drag-and-drop feature. The unregistered version limits your usage to a maximum of 3 files at once. The program gives you information about the file’s name, its size and number of pages. After you choose the PDF file, you should select the output folder and press the 'Start' button. Then the application displays whether the operation has been completed or not. The tool works with 1.0-1.7 PDF formats. Although the developers mention on their official website that it supports multiple languages, this feature is not available when accessing the application. Also I dislike the fact that you can neither maximize the application nor change the main theme.
To sum up, this is a good-working application that does what it’s supposed to do. I like the honesty of the developers regarding the fact that the tool doesn’t remove the open password of a PDF file. If you want to get rid of the owner’s restrictions enabled in a PDF, you should use this program.
