Pros of using DeftPDF online

1. Easy to use

All tools at DeftPDF can be used without the need for tutorials because it's so easy to use and navigate. You only need to click convert and download the file when the processing is complete. Each tool is provided with a guide in case you have some questions about how to use the tool and if there are more questions unanswered with tutorials, you can always send an email.

2. Safe and Secure

Uploaded files and processed outputs are automatically deleted after 4 hours. This is how safe and reliable we are at DeftPDF. There’s no need to worry about your file lingering on someone’s server. Additionally, our servers are all secure and encrypted so all files stored are guaranteed safe.

3. Supports all platforms

As a web-based online tool, DeftPDF can operate on all kinds of devices and platforms including Mac, Linux, and Windows. As long as the tool has a browser and is connected to the internet, you can use the tools without any problem.

4. Supports OCR

OCR is one of the most important technologies that can help you fix scanned PDF files into searchable and machine-readable files. You can extract text from image-based files and quickly get accurate content.

5. Integrates with cloud storages

DeftPDF allows you to extract files from your online storage straight to the online converter or editor tools. You can also download and store the output results straight to your online storage such as Dropbox or Google Drive. URL links are also supported for uploading and can also directly be converted or edited once the web address link is provided on the tool. This makes PDF management much more convenient for anyone as it removes a few steps on your tasks.

6. Free for all

Most online PDF editors and converters are also free but they are free for a limited time, the quantity of files, or limited access to tools. At DeftPDF, we provide all tools that are completely free to use unlimitedly – meaning you can convert as many times as you like, edit your file frequently without any limits, and manage your PDF files without worrying if the time is up! DeftPDF is an online PDF tool that values freeware and knows that every user has the right to use a free format. You don’t even need to register or create an account, you can start using the tool straight away.

Cons of using a free account

DeftPDF is positioned not only as a converter but also as a PDF editor and translator. DeftPDF has a simple user-friendly design with 40 different online tools that are all easy to navigate. Best of all, using it as a freeware does not affect the output quality, therefore no files are reduced or affected. The only cons you can think of for this tool is the fact that it does not have an offline application yet.

While all tools are free to use unlimitedly, each tool is limited to one file at a time so it is recommended for users to upgrade if they need to do more out of the tools, such as batch processing and bulk conversions. Free accounts are also limited to 50MB per upload and have a lot of ads that can actually affect processing time.
