Two kinds of Passwords Normally there are two kinds of passwords to protect a PDF. One is called Owner Password. It is a kind a password used to protect PDF viewers from copying, editing and printing the PDFs. Owner Password is the most widely used password. Another one is User Password, also named as Open Password. It is often created by the PDF creator who does not want other people to know what’s going on in the PDF or the concretely content.
Convert protected PDF To convert protected PDFs, you need a professional PDF Converter. You might have known that there are online PDF converters. However, I have to remind you of one point: many of the online PDF converters cannot handle the protected PDFs. Generally, they are developed to convert native or standard PDFs. Here are two options. One is you can decrypt the password with a password remover and then use an online PDF converter to convert the PDF to the format you need. Or you directly convert protected PDF in a powerful PDF converter. I don’t know which you’d prefer. Actually I prefer the second option. It saves time and simplify the procedure. In this case, I recommend Wondershare PDF Converter. It is a professional PDF tool to convert protected PDF to daily used formats, Word, PPT, Excel spreadsheet, image, EPUB, text and more.
