How to open password protected PDF file. Crack PDF Password.

This password PDF file problem recently happened to me. My bank had sent me some of the statements of my account but it was password protected and I had to unlock the password protected PDF. The hint was some 4 digit number but not very enough to crack the PDF. It was a holiday so I couldn’t even call the bank asking for help and I had no patience to wait. So, I started googling around searching for tools and hardly I found one but It only could crack a 3 digit password PDF. Lucky enough, after some time I found a 4 digit password PDF protected Cracking software.

If you have already searched enough then you can find this iSumsoft PDF Password Refixer all over the internet, but it only works for 3 digit passwords.

Accordingly, the software first finds out the length of the password and calculates all the possibilities that can unlock the PDF.
