Recover PDF Password is a Mac tool that recovers forgotten passwords to PDF documents. If the PDF is password-protected, Recover PDF Password will retrieve both “owner” and “user” passwords, even if you cannot remember a single character from the key combination, using brute-force passwords verification.

The Start Recovery is the button you push to start the recovery process after you define the recovery method and the dictionary options.

The dictionary options let you choose between all the types of letters, digits and symbols that you think might be in the password:
After determining all the options, you can start the recovery:
And then, it’s just a matter of time until the password is recovered (complex and long passwords will, obviously, take longer):
Recover PDF Password is a simple and easy to use tool that can simplify you life.
