Sometimes we need to protect a word document with a password, to be more confident that it is not read by anyone or because we care about our privacy. If you did and now you do not know how to remove it, let’s see how to remove it.

The way to do it is really simple but, of course, requires that you already know the password of the document because you have to open it.

If the document is already open to delete the password you will not be asked to reinsert it and you can do it even if you do not know it.
