"FAKE REVIEWS."

November 03, 2013  |  By Firstname_Lastname

2013-11-03 05:04:14  |  By Firstname_Lastname

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 2.0

Pros

You read this before installing.

Cons

Installs TONNES of crapware, took longer to uninstall than install. Plus the actual PDF unlocking program is unbelievably crap, it starts with A through to Z, then does a through to z, then Aa through to Az and so on. It literally tries every single possibility, at about 2 per second. There are billions of possibilities!

Summary

Avoid, please for the love of god AVOID.

"It used to be a good program"

May 03, 2013  |  By wise-old-man

2013-05-03 05:14:04  |  By wise-old-man

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 2.0

Pros

- Easy to use
- It's free

Cons

It does not work with new PDF files. It cannot unlock PDF files encrypted with latest 256bit AES encryption.

It works well, but many new files can't be cracked.

It's a bit outdated program which does not work with new PDF files. If it fails to work, try this latest PDF unlocker: http://www.mypdfsolutions.com

"the worms are getting stronger"

April 12, 2013  |  By mrambler956

2013-04-12 15:10:49  |  By mrambler956

 |  Version: Free PDF Unlocker 2.0

Pros

works well on most files

Cons

newer pdfs can defeat it

Summary

Still works pretty well, but I've noticed over the last few months that many new files can't be cracked. Looks like it needs an update. Also, go direct to the publisher's website and download it from there, where it's a clean install; getting it from here comes with a bunch of toolbar baloney in the installer.
