Step 1. Import PDF files

On Wondershare PDF to Excel Converter for Mac, drag password protected PDF files and drop them to the PDF app. If you're using the Windows version, you should click the Add Files to upload PDF files from local hard disk. This PDF app supports convert PDF files in batch, 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.
