In case you have lost the password of your important PDF documents, the software can be immensely useful in retrieving the passwords. The software efficiently recovers the original 'Document Open Password', you have set for the document and helps in resetting PDF passwords by removing all security permissions.
Under the 'Mask' module, you have the option to define the starting character of the password (If you remember exactly). You can also build the character set by putting a '?' in place of the unknown character. You can also define the accurate maximum length of the password to decrease the search time.
The software supports all encryption methods, involved in major versions of Adobe Acrobat. This software can decrypt any protected PDF file and allows you to reset PDF password by removing all its permission settings. The software supports decryption from 256 bit AES, 128 bit RC4, 128 bit AES and 40 bit RC4 encryption algorithms.
The software provides several useful options, which help in faster PDF password recovery. With the filter option of the software, you can narrow the password searching criteria by choosing the character sets – (a-z), (A-Z), (0-9), (All Printable), (Special Characters), (Space).
Software incorporates many advanced techniques, which ensure successful recovery of the lost PDF password, irrespective of its complexity. The Brute Force Attack technique of the software checks for all possible combinations of characters in the password and thus ensures definite recovery. The specially designed Dictionary Attack technique of the software tries to build different password sets, depending upon your other passwords, saved in the system. Moreover, once it recovers a password, it saves in an unreadable format and shows it instantly, the next time you search for the same.
On completion of the process, the software generates the detailed log report of the entire process of recovery or resetting PDF password. You can save the Log Report at any desired location, which can be helpful for any future reference.
