Reasons to Unlock PDF

If a password was set to protect the PDF and you forgot it, unlocking the file is the only way to access its contents. There may be situations where you need to access a secured PDF but you have legitimate permission to do so. For example, you may need access to a password-protected PDF to edit or extract important information.

If you need to share a PDF with others and it is password protected, you may need to unlock it so that recipients can open and access your content. In some cases, you may want to make changes to a protected PDF file, such as adding, removing or modifying content. To do this, you will need to unlock the PDF.

If you want to convert a protected PDF to another format like Word or Excel, you may need to unlock it before converting. It is important to remember that unlocking a password-protected PDF without the owner's permission may be illegal and violate copyright or other laws. It is always recommended to get the proper permission before trying to unlock a secured PDF file.
