Should I unprotect a PDF?
By unlocking a PDF, you remove the requested password when you try to read it. It is a protection that guarantees the security of your personal, sensitive or confidential data. Thus, someone with malicious intent will not be able to access the document without knowing the password that protects it.
So there are risks involved. That said, for some cases, unprotecting a PDF can be very useful.
If your document is no longer confidential, you can remove its password so that you can read it without having to enter the password each time you open it. Also, some software does not manage encrypted PDFs: decrypting them temporarily allows you to manipulate your document, before protecting it again.
