  • Wait for the upload to finish and then open the user program in STL format.



  • Find the line where SFC 109 "PROTECT" is called with a parameter that sets the password protection level (0 for no protection, 1 for full protection, 2 for partial protection).



  • Change the parameter to 0 (no protection) and save the changes.



  • Go back to "PLC > Download" or click on the download icon.



  • Select "Download user program only" and click on "OK".



  • Select "Download without online test" and click on "OK".



  • Wait for the download to finish and then disconnect the PLC from the PC.



  • The PLC is now unlocked and ready to use.



Method 3: Using third-party software or service




This is another method to unlock password PLC Siemens S7 300, which involves using a third-party software or service that can crack or bypass the password protection. However, this method may not work for all types and levels of protection, and it may be illegal or unethical depending on the source and purpose of using it. The steps may vary depending on the software or service used, but generally they are as follows:


  • Connect the PLC to a PC with a programming cable (MPI or PPI) and run the software or service.



  • Select the PLC model and communication port.



  • Click on "Read Password" or "Unlock Password" or similar option.



  • Wait for the software or service to finish its process and display the password or confirmation message.



  • Disconnect the PLC from the PC.



  • The PLC is now unlocked and ready to use.

Enter KNOW_HOW_PROTECT in Source




This is another method to protect your PLC Siemens S7 300 from unauthorized upload or download of specific blocks in your user program, such as function blocks (FBs), data blocks (DBs), or organization blocks (OBs). It involves entering a keyword called KNOW_HOW_PROTECT in the source code of these blocks, which prevents them from being displayed or edited in STEP 7 software. The steps are as follows:


  • Connect the PLC to a PC with a programming cable (MPI or PPI) and open STEP 7 software.



  • Select the PLC in the project tree and go to "PLC > Upload" or click on the upload icon.



  • Select "Upload user program only" and click on "OK".



  • Wait for the upload to finish and then open the block you want to protect in STL format.



  • Enter the keyword KNOW_HOW_PROTECT in the first line of the source code, followed by a semicolon (;).



  • Save the changes and go back to "PLC > Download" or click on the download icon.



  • Select "Download user program only" and click on "OK".



  • Select "Download without online test" and click on "OK".



  • Wait for the download to finish and then disconnect the PLC from the PC.
