Most people on monthly basis receive a bank statement in PDF format which is protected with password. This is done for the security purposes so that your personal information cannot be viewed or copied by others. It might be troublesome to enter the bank statement password every time you want to view or edit it. And what's even worse is that you totally forget your password, which results in the failure to access your bank statement, still less to edit it. Here in this tutorial, we provide you with all the knowledge that you need to remove password from PDF bank statement.

Part 1: Remove Password from PDF Bank Statement with Password

If you do know the password of your PDF bank statement and just want to spare yourself the trouble of entering it every time, you can try the next two methods. Generally it's simpler compared with the situation where you have no clue at all about the password.

1.1. By Google Chrome

Removing the password from PDF bank statement file has never been this easy before. You just have to make a few clicks to remove the password. This can be done with your very own favorite browser "Google Chrome". In order to remove password to view the PDF file with the help of Google Chrome you need to follow the steps:

Step 1: Right click on the encrypted PDF document and from "open with" menu select "Google Chrome".

Google Chrome is a very simple method to remove PDF document password so that we can open and edit it freely. However, this method won't be workable if your original bank statement is restricted from printing because the way Google Chrome achieves this goal is printing the original pdf to save a new copy of the pdf, which is clear of any restrictions, thus convenient for our daily use.

1.2. By Adobe Acrobat

Adobe Acrobat is another choice to remove PDF document password if you have the password. Follow the steps below and it will work fast:

Step 1: Make sure that the Adobe Acrobat you use is pro version (the paid version) and open it.

Step 2: Click on the "File" option on the top left corner, on the dropped menu click on the "Open" option and search for your file.

Step 3: If there is no document open password, you'll be able to open it directly. If your PDF file is protected only with an open password, just enter the open password as required. And if your PDF document is locked by both open password and permission password, either of them can open it.

Step 4: Click on the "Protect" option on the right side of your screen and you'll see 3 options showing up below the menu on the top of Adobe. Choose "More Options" and next "Security Properties".

Step 5: Beside the "Security Method", hit the drop-down button and choose "No Security". If you have only set a document open password, then you just need to confirm the change. If you have set a permission password, you need to re-enter the permission password to complete this change.
