How to change PDF metadata

First select or drag the PDF whose metadata you want to edit into the file box. Then change the input fields and start the change process. A few seconds later you can download your new PDF with changed metadata.

Change unwanted data

The metadata often contains information that needs to be changed for various reasons, especially if you share the PDF with others or put it on the Internet. You can do this easily with this tool.

PDF24 makes it as easy and fast as possible to change PDF metadata. You don't need to install or set anything, just select your PDF file, change the data and create the new PDF.

No installation necessary

You do not need to install any software. Metadata is changed on special PDF24 servers. Your system will not be burdened and does not need any special requirements.

Safety is important to us

This tool does not store your files longer than necessary on the PDF24 servers. Your files and results will be completely removed from the PDF24 servers after a short time.
