UNLIKE normal PDF protection utilities only adding restrictions to PDF files, PDF Anti-Copy reprocesses all the words and graphics on the sensitive PDF pages to secure PDF documents, without changing the original content format. The processed PDF files could be opened and viewed by PDF Readers, but copying and converting the content on the Anti-Copy Pages will not work even the cracker uses the PDF unlocking or restriction removing programs.

-Selective PDF Page Protection
-Restrict PDF to protect from printing
-Global PDF permission prohibits copy function
-Keep the original PDF format and quality

Downloaded, and registered PRO version without problems. Unable to OPEN any pdf document regardless of size, language or protection.
To check if there was some spooky protection, I tried opening the same pdf's with Word. No problem.
Conclusion? - PDF Anti-Copy Pro is unable to do what it claims. So far a waste of time!

My interest was the opposite...how to merge different bank statements in one. That was not possible because they were edit protected...
FYI the really free "Free PDF Password Remover" from 4Dots did the trick.

Ted, The 4Dots tool seems to require a 'user' password and then it will remove the 'owner' password. Makes it useless for every protected pdf I might want to edit.

So print the “protected” PDF. Scan it with other software with OCR capability. Done.

Nothing could be stopped from being copied if it is on your screen... It takes more efforts but it is always possible. Just try any OCR (my favorite is ABBYY)

I initially thought this was a great idea, but the way that the program converts the text to an image reduces its sharpness noticeably and that's not acceptable.

Why do so many people not look at the License details? Is it more fun to type than read?

Duane, When the giveaway page was published, the line "Licence details: Lifetime, no updates" was forgotten and added later on the day.

Unbelievable, the number of people asking for the length of license period without reading prior comments.

Hott2, comments are not posted directly, but have to wait to be moderated. So it can happen the answer to your question is waiting for attention of the moderator of the day.

How does the security work against screenshots and ten using OCR to extract the text?

Reply   |   Comment by Bernd  –  10 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

How would the security work against somebody re-typing the content of the PDF in Word and then editing it? Cheats will always find a way.

Bernd,

Quite a few comments on this point from the 2017 offer:

Bernd,

Also, this article may address your concerns via a screenshot-preventing program called PDF Unshare (also can set an expiry date):

https://pdfanticopy.com/how-to-protect-confidential-pdf-files-from-sharing.html

https://pdfunshare.com/

(NOTE: as yet untested by me; free for home use)

Apparently it requires a free/multi-platform UPDF Reader program for viewing on only 1 device afterwards.

HMarx, Wonder how that works against Greenshot. ;)

Mick, Have you ever tried to open a protected PDF file in Word? It comes out with tons of jumbled unreadable bits of characters like this:

Bernd, Same question here! The company also offers a PDF OCR tool.... interesting, isn't it!

Reply   |   Comment by JackK  –  10 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

JackK, the newer Word, like the one in Microsoft 365, can OCR a pdf.
