Password-locked document

Judge Gayle Hamilton

Hi,
 
I am currently locked out of a document that I am needing to print and I do not know the password. I am unsure of how a password was set for this document as it has not happened before. How can I unlock the document?
 
Also, how can I be sure this does not happen in the future?
 
Thank you

It's like being locked out of your home when you lost your key.

Passwords aren't set automatically, even it the tick box is accidentally
ticked when you save your
document you still need to enter the password twice.
The fact that something didn't happen before is no guarantee that it
will not happen in the future.

Well if you're locked out from your home you call a Locksmith, when
you're locked out from your
document you can hire a expert, but they can be quite expensive and
there is no guarantee that
the will be able to break the encrypted password.

Pay more attention when a menu pops up

I suggest you rewrite the document before you pay the expert.

Once upon a time there was a Python script that would brute force OOo
documents that had been password protected. It worked on both the old
and new encryption modules.
