Recover PDF passwords using different methods

Recover PDF Password for Mac provides you with 3 comprehensive methods of searching for the lost password:

  • Search by password length: using this method you may set minimum and maximum password length. Shorter passwords are checked first, long passwords' recovery can take more time.
  • Search by template: if you remember a part of the password, but cannot call up the whole key combination, this method is the best for you. Simply specify the template and Recover PDF Password for Mac will quickly retrieve the forgotten password for you.
  • Use exhaustive search: you can use this search method if you can't remember the password at all. This method guarantees 100% success but requires maximum time. This method will recover long and complicated "owner" and "user" passwords.
