    "absolutely useless"

    September 17, 2012  |   By hpsteel

    Version: PDFKey Pro 3.15

    Pros

    none that I can see

    Cons

    just doesn't work

    Summary

    ripped off for 24 bucks. I guess this is how they keep the doors open. 24 bucks at a time to pay for the false advertising.

    "App not finished"

    December 16, 2011  |   By BridgitBlue

    Version: PDFKey Pro 3.13

    Pros

    nice features generally

    Cons

    sometimes crashes, when used decryption

    app need to finish it - it recovers only owner password, and Pdf password for the last time protected by user password.

    Summary

    I cannot undesrtand why developers release and distribute apps which are not fully. What i mean? I mean, that useful recovery tools should unlock two types of passwords, not only OWNER!

    "Does what is says."

    November 10, 2011  |   By Nick0004

    Version: PDFKey Pro 3.13

    Pros

    It removes all the restrictions from a PDF file.

    Cons

    None as it works.

    Summary

    Actually i was looking for a pdfunlocker for windows 7, but somehow I've landed on this page and downloaded it for my MacBook. And yeah it did work for me. But if you're too looking for a good tool to remove pdf securities for window platform, you can get it from here

    "Works OK for me"

    July 17, 2011  |   By 2ndgenirish

    Version: PDFKey Pro 3.13

    Pros

    PDFKey Pro for me has been quick and effective.

    Cons

    None since the program has worked every time for me.

    Summary

    Has not failed me yet though I have used it only a few times. I got it to unlock .pdf forms because I want to keep copies.
    I asked the developer if I could have to removed password, and got a reply that the program does not identify a password, just removes.

    "Great support"

    March 25, 2010  |   By macsolver

    Version: PDFKey Pro 3.11

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Hi,

    A small problem with Apple's Java Virtual Machine 1.5 caused the initial version of 3.11 to crash on launch. A quick exchange of emails with the author resulted in an updated and working version being posted on his website. If you are having problems, delete the problem version and download the current version from the website.

    Software is a great help for allowing emergency revisions to locked PDFs when the originator is out of contact, or has forgotten the password !

    Regards,

    Nick

    "Works well"

    April 20, 2009  |   By bruno.net

    Version: PDFKey Pro 3.7.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Used it on a PDF with edit restriction (128 encrypted). Worked well. Just tried once.

    Good interface, very simple GUI. Can be used in command line mode too - if you want to use in a script. 5 stars.

    Interface is obviously better than "Guaranteed PDF Decrypter v3.0", which is a command line utility only.

    I think the price is a bit steep for a utility that I will not use very often, so only 4 stars overall.

    iMac 2.66 (Intel), OS X 10.5.6

    "Still great after all these years"

    October 4, 2008  |   By davebarnes

    Version: PDFKey Pro 3.7.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Three years ago (25AUG2005) I gave a 5-star rating to PDFKey Pro.
    I still give it 5 stars.
    Every month or so, I need to unlock a PDF and this software always does the job for me.
    The price is right and the application is trivial to use.
    Sometimes, a single-purpose tool is the best.

    "Works"

    October 8, 2007  |   By prolaw1

    Version: PDFKey Pro 3.4.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Purchased over 500 page locked PDF and could not copy and paste info into documents for work. Within seconds I could.

    The only delay was in getting activation code. Had to write to author and it was sent promptly.

    I have not tried locking feature, only unlocking.

    "Finally ... my Spotlight searches now work inside..."

    June 2, 2007  |   By swmj

    Version: PDFKey Pro 3.4.2

    Summary

    ...PDFs.
    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Can you say hallelujah? This tool is a godsend ... now my Spotlight searches actually work on all materials not just those that do not have passwords - so my hard drive searches now give me better results than Google internet searches for those subjects that I collect.

    (NOTE - I have purchased all copyrighted electronic material I have directly from the authors or their authorized business partners, so I have the passwords, and I do not make copies to anywhere except my own two computers and my own two backups, unlike many doofs online out there).
