Advanced PDF Password Recovery


A program to decrypt protected Adobe Acrobat PDF files, which have "owner" password set, preventing the file from editing (changing), printing, selecting text and graphics (and copying them into the Clipboard), or adding/changing annotations and form fields (in any combination). Decryption is being done instantly. Decrypted file can be opened in any PDF viewer (e.g. Adobe Acrobat Reader) without any restrictions -- i.e. with edit/copy/print/annotate functions enabled. Professional version also allows to search for both "user" and "owner" passwords using brute-force and dictionary attacks, effectively optimized for speed. Standard version costs $30 (personal license) or $60 (business license); professional version costs $60 (personal license) or $120 (business license).

Advanced PDF Password Recovery


This program (Advanced PDF Password Recovery, or simply APDFPR) can be used to decrypt protected Adobe Acrobat PDF files, which have "owner" password set, preventing the file from editing (changing), printing, selecting text and graphics (and copying them into the Clipboard), or adding/changing annotations and form fields (in any combination). Decryption is being done instantly. Decrypted file can be opened in any PDF viewer (e.g. Adobe Acrobat Reader) without any restrictions -- i.e. with edit/copy/print functions enabled. The program is also able to convert Kinko's Document Format (KDF) files to PDF files (without any protection).



Please note that APDFPR doesn't work with documents which have user-level passwords (preventing the files from being opened), if both user and owner passwords are unknown; and PDF files protected with any 3rd party security plug-ins such as FileOpen.



Professional edition also allows to search for "owner" and "user" passwords with brute-force and dictionary attacks, effectively optimized for speed (however, don't expect to recover long passwords in a resonable time with these attacks). In addition, it has Key search attack, which guarantees the decryption (regardless the password length and complexity) of PDF files that use 40-bit encryption (the attack takes about 3-4 days on modern dual-CPU systems).



Warning: APDFPR does NOT work on Mac computers with Virtual PC; unfortunately, it seems to be a problem of Virtual PC itself. Native Mac version of APDFPR is under development.

Important! Unregistered (trial) version can be used during 30 days after installation (although it doesn't expire, actually) and has some limitations. You can order the fully licensed version of APDFPR over the Internet from RegNow with any major credit card. The ordering page is on a secure server, ensuring that your confidential information remains confidential. As soon as RegNow notifies us that your order has been processed (usually in one business day), we will provide you with the serial number which will register your copy of APDFPR. You can also make the usual wire transfer to our bank account in U.S. or send the check, if you would not like to use you credit card in the Internet; see order.txt for details.



Note: There are Personal and Business licenses ($30 and $60 for Standard Edition, and $60 and $120 for Professional Edition, respectively). With the Personal License, you can use the program for non-commercial purposes in non-business, non commercial environment. To use the program in a corporate, government or business environment, you should purchase a Business License.

why do you have a password protected file anyway?
you either downloaded it and should not have it, or someone encrypted it for a good reason.
