PDF has globally becomes the most popular file format and there are more than 150 million PDF documents available on the web today. And it's inevitable that you will receive many PDF files, along with some disturbed problems. Most people may have come across this case: you receive a large number of PDF files and want to print PDF files out, but only find that they are not printable, even not copyable. What will you do then? Give up the printing? Of course not, we can find another way to print a PDF out finally.

Second, add the PDF files for removing password. Click Add PDF(s) button to those PDF files that you want to remove password.
Third, remove the PDF files' password.
Fourth, print them out.
Of course, you have to remove the restrictions of PDF with legal right and then print those PDF files out as normal.
