Unlock PDF

An easy-to-use online tool to remove passwords from PDFs.

Remove PDF Passwords Instantly
We can strip your password-protected PDF file of its security if no strong encryption exists. Your PDF will be unlocked and ready for download within seconds.
Secure Handling of Your Information
When you upload a file it is transmitted using a secure connection. Your files are deleted one hour after processing. If we need a password from you, it will not be read or stored.
Unlock PDFs on Any Platform
Smallpdf.com is browser-based and works on all platforms. It doesn’t matter if you use Mac, Windows, or Linux.
Unlock Most PDFs
Files with an owner password can be unlocked instantly. However, if the file is strongly encrypted, you can only unlock the file by providing the correct password.
