Initial window of the PDF Unlocker tool appears like:

As soon as the PDF is been selected the assigned permissions gets displayed in the column provided under ‘Permissions on PDF File’ section.

Alternate Benefits:
 
The tool is available in three user licenses that include Personal, Business and Enterprise license. The personal license does not support batch processing of PDF files. For unlocking batch files, Business or Enterprise licenses can be purchased. The technical support is provided 24*7 for resolving product related queries.
Availability of distinct user licenses provides the benefit of selecting either; based on usage requirements. The Trial version provides the opportunity to test the software without making any investments. Activation key can be acquired within few hours of making payment for the licensed product.
 
 
Modifications Required:


 
The tool helps removing all sorts of PDF access restrictions from the file. But it does not remove passwords without providing the accurate credentials. This limitation must be eliminated from the tool and it must remove passwords without prompting for the same. In addition, personal license must support batch execution of files as it will save time and efforts too.
 
 
Final Analysis:
 
The tool is well versed with all the features that are required to unlock PDF files. Minor changes are required to make the tool more user-centric. Since, the PDF files are widely used to share information electronically, it is necessary to assign access restrictions on these files. Though, these limitations and authorities sometimes prove to be annoying, PDF Unlocker helps gaining access to the incorporated data. I found the restriction removal tool helpful as my experience with the same is quite satisfactory. Therefore, I would rate it 7 on the scale of 10.
