Click the Add Files button to browse your computer to add all your password protected PDF files. Or you can drag and drop files into the window. This PDF app supports converting PDF files in batches, so you can upload an array of PDF files at a time.

If a PDF file is protected from being opened, then after you upload it, a lock will appear on the PDF item bar. In this case, you need to enter the right password to unlock it. If the PDF is just protected from printing, copying, or editing, just move to the next step.
