Password provider

Retrieve stored Facebook passwords with this sneaky utility.

We can't say that we don't have a few ethical issues with FacebookPasswordDecryptor. Sure, you might need such a program because you've forgotten your own password, or maybe because you suspect that your teenager is up to no good and you want to see what secrets Facebook can reveal. You could just as easily, however, use this program to nose around in your spouse's--or even your employee's--Facebook account. We'll leave that up to you and your conscience. What we can tell you is that FacebookPasswordDecryptor does indeed work as advertised.

FacebookPasswordDecryptor works by detecting passwords that are saved in browsers and messenger programs, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, Flock, Paltalk, and Miranda. It's very easy to use: just click the Start Recovery button and the program will dig up Facebook passwords wherever they're stored. They're displayed in a list, and users can toggle the password display so that they're only visible when you want them to be. The results can be exported to a text or HTML file. Although FacebookPasswordDecryptor comes with an installer, there's also a portable version of the program that can be placed on a USB drive. The program has no Help file, and it's really pretty short on features; it retrieves Facebook passwords and nothing more. Still, if you're desperate to recover your--or someone else's--Facebook password, this is the program for you.

FacebookPasswordDecryptor comes as a ZIP file, installs a desktop icon without asking, and leaves a file behind upon removal.
