Hi Andreat,

As mentioned above, that you would like to remove the password protection form the document. So is that a single document you are referring to or multiple?

You can actually achieve that with the help of Adobe Acrobat by following the steps suggested in the help document mentioned below-

How do I remove password protection from documents I have permission to view? 

Hope this is what you were looking for.

Printing to PDF is not recommended. The results are often unsatisfactory. Of course Adobe doesn't support this way of removing security either - this should be done by entering the password in Acrobat's security properties.
