 pdf file processing: how to "Enable Editing"

When opening some pdf files, the following banner appears at the top:


To prevent this from appearing during the next file opening, simply click on "Enable Editing" and save the file.
I am looking for a way to automate this process by using Python. For that I need to know the attribute of the pdf file which is responsible for this "Enable Editing".

Any ideas ?

you can read the pdf, modify and then write a new pdf with pypdf2.

It was the core of my quesition: how to modify ?
What should I do once pdf is read ?
check out:
The example from your link doesn't match my case.
In that example the pdf is modified ... e.g. watermark is added.
In my case, I have nothing to modify in the file - I just have to activate editing and save the file so that the annoying banner disappears.
