    Lost Password

      I lost password for a pdf file. Is there anyway to retrieve it or give the file a new password?

          If you can open the file, there are utilities available on the internet
          that will create a new version without a password, but I have no idea
          what they do to any special features in the file. If you cannot open the
          file you need to find software that will crack the password for you.

          Whether you feel you can trust the software someone provides you to
          crack passwords or remove security features from files you have on your
          computer, not to try to crack your computer, your passwords any any
          activity you do on the internet it up to you.
