How to Remove Security Settings from Your Own PDF

February 1, 2011DavidPDF0

Sometimes you add security settings to your .PDF files in order to limit certain features.  You can add passwords, restrict printing, restrict reader changing as well as a whole host of other features.  But what if you go ahead and secure your document and you want to remove those security settings?  The answer is simpler than you may think.

1. Open the secured document on which you wish to change the security settings.

2. Head to the Advanced menu option, and in the Security option, select “Remove Security”.  You will be prompted to enter the password that you used to initially setup the security but after that your security settings will be removed.
