Choose “Tools” > “Protect” > “Encrypt” > “Remove Security.”
- Remove Security:
The options vary depending on the type of password security attached to the document.

- If the document has a permissions password, type it in the “Enter Password” box, then click “OK.” Click “OK” once more to confirm the action.
