PDF24 makes it as easy as possible for you to compare documents. You don't need to install or set up anything, just select your files.

Supports your system

There are no special requirements for comparing two files on your system. This app works with all major operating systems and browsers.

No installation required

You do not need to install any software. The files are compared on our servers. Your system does not require any special requirements.

Security is important to us

Our file comparison tool does not store your files longer than necessary. Your files and results will be removed from our server after a short time.
