Mac OS X utility to unlock password-protected PDF documents.

PDFKey Pro is an OS X application which allows you to easily recover from lost copying and printing PDF passwords.

You will be able to create an unlocked copy of your PDF files without entering or copying or printing password.

Also, if your files are protected for viewing, you need to supply the password and PDFKey Pro will make a fully unlocked document. PDFs can be processed in bulk, without requiring your intervention.

Moreover, with PDFKey Pro, you can rapidly block your PDFs. Set a password to view the file and a password to restrict printing and copy and pasting of your PDFs.

The files created by PDFKey Pro will be identical to the originals and you will be able to open them in any PDF viewer.
