Doesn't work as promises 1 stars by olivi78305 Aug 11, 2016 (Read all my 2 reviews)
It doesn't remove hidden data as promises; only it covers them. And it allows another person easy to find and read them. show Review details
Blessing for free 5 stars by bassaniobroke Jul 07, 2015 (Read all my 5 reviews)
I recommend this because it is also a PDF printer so I may print the online receipts etc as PDF and later get it printed at print shop, in this way I don't need to have printer at home which is a very costly affair. It also allows to annotate and comment on the PDF file in various ways,allows to insert text on file as well. The loveliest part is it allows to highlight any area you like to, hence you may also highlight images and not text stuff, the opening speed is also fine. No other problems encountered such as infiltrating the computer with viruses worms etc. Thanks to company for keeping it free, God bless you. show Review details
My new default pdf viewer 4 stars by realbull2009250 Mar 30, 2015 (Read all my 60 reviews)
Foxit is full of options for free. I can't list them all here, but all the features that the average user would want is here. One thing that it does not have is a true PDF creator like Nitro Reader. Foxit can convert documents into a PDF, but it cannot create a customized PDF document or edit a PDF. If you want to create or edit PDFs you'll have to buy their Foxit PhantomPDF or use some other software. It is the fastest PDF viewer with many options(Sumatra is the fastest viewer, but doesn't have as many options) and can open large PDFs with reasonable speed. The only thing I don't like is the Windows ribbon GUI. It is rather large and takes up a lot of space, but you have the option to use the old GUI which has a thinner toolbar. Now Foxit Reader is the best free PDF viewer in my opinion. show Review details
