Foxit PhantomPDF Pre-installed on Industry Leading PCs

Foxit Software has long been regarded as a leading software provider of fast, affordable, and secure PDF solutions, so it’s no wonder that HP, Acer, and Asus have turned to Foxit PhantomPDF as the pre-installed PDF software on their Windows desktop PCs and laptops.

With these partnerships, Phantom PDF is now the PDF application that three of the top five Windows-based PC manufacturers choose to pre-install on their products. These top tier manufacturers represent over one third of personal computer shipments worldwide.

On these pre-installed systems, PhantomPDF starts in Express mode.  PhantomPDF Express is a small, fast, and feature-rich PDF viewer that allows users to open, view, and print any PDF file. However it’s more than just a PDF reader. This software provides the user with the ability to create PDF files and offers easy-to-use collaboration features such as the ability to add annotations, fill out forms, and share information with others.   PhantomPDF Express is also one of the most secure PDF technologies available, ensuring worry-free protection against malware.

Users with Foxit’s pre-installed software can keep and use PhantomPDF Express for the life of their PC. This includes any updates that the software may require in the future.

As an added bonus, users can choose a 30-day trial of PhantomPDF Business without having to Download anything extra, or remove any files when the trial is complete. The business version of Foxit’s PDF software application provides the additional capabilities of editing and organization, OCR of scanned documents, exporting to other file formats, PDF form development, and additional security functions that protect PDF files, so users can make the most of their PDF documents.

    What is the difference between Foxit PhantomPDF and Foxit PhantomPDF express? Is the express version simply another name for the Foxit Reader?

      Hi Jim, Foxit PhantomPDF is very similar to Foxit Reader. Foxit PhantomPDF allows you to protect, secure, create , combine, organize PDFs, etc.

    Considering purchasing the Phantom PDF license, rather than a monthly subscription. If I make the one-time purchase, does the license expire at some point? In other words, do I have to re-purchase every year or whatever interval?

    I need to make a clean install of Windows 8.1 on an Acer Aspire E5. Where can I download Foxit Phantom Express for a new installation? There is nothing on Acer website.
    Thank You in adbance.

    I’m curious to know if I upgrade the pre-installed HP software version to the full Business version, does that provide me the ability to use the license on another computer in the future by installing the non-branded FoxitPhamtom software and applying the license code? Or, am I only capable of using the upgraded Business version license on the specific PC?

      Hello, Thanks for choosing Foxit Software for your PDF solutions! You would only be able to use the HP version on this specific Hp computer. You would not be able to move it to another branded computer as it will not work. We suggest you to purchase the regular Foxit PhantomPDF if you plan to use another computer in the future.

    I find it highly deceiving that HP is actually selling an “Upgrade to Foxit Phantom PDF Business Software” but in reality, it is simply a pre-installed FREE trial of the business version that expires in 30 days, just like the trial you offer on your own site.

    Does Foxit know this and condone this, or worse , ask for this kind of deceptive positioning?

      The preloaded version of Foxit PhantomPDF offers users who are not familiar with Foxit to try the PhantomPDF Business product. This allows users to test the product before making a purchasing decision. After the 30 day trial the product will convert to a free version that will still allow users to view PDFs.
