Password-protected documents

GroupDocs.Parser provides the functionality to open the password-protected documents.

The following are the steps to work with password protected documents.

The following code sample shows how to process password protected documents.

try {
    String password = "123456";
    // Create an instance of Parser class with the password:
    try (Parser parser = new Parser(Constants.SamplePassword, new LoadOptions(password))) {
        // Check if text extraction is supported
        if (!parser.getFeatures().isText()) {
            System.out.println("Text extraction isn't supported.");
        // Print the document text
        try (TextReader reader = parser.getText()) {
} catch (InvalidPasswordException ex) {
    // Print the message if the password is incorrect or empty
    System.out.println("Invalid password");

If the password is incorrect or empty InvalidPasswordException exception is thrown.

The following code shows how to check whether a file is password-protected:

// Get a file info
FileInfo info = Parser.getFileInfo(filePath);
// Check IsEncrypted property
System.out.println(info.isEncrypted() ? "Password is required" : "");
