Editors' Review


Losing the password to your Internet service provider account can be frustrating, especially since the only way to contact many ISPs is online. Nirsoft's Dialupass is a free tool that enumerates all the dial-up and VPN entries on your PC and displays their details, including User Name, Password, and Domain. With it, you can recover a lost password or logon ID. You can run the tool when things are swell and save the list as text, HTML, CSV, or XML files for when you need it. You can also copy the results to the clipboard.

Like most of Nirsoft's tools, Dialupass is a tiny download; the program file is less than 40KB and runs as soon as it's clicked, so it's totally portable and would make a great addition to a USB drive toolkit. We tested it on machines running Windows XP and 7. Dialupass opened with a bread-and-butter dialog listing each system's dial-up connections, displaying user names, passwords, and other information about our account and settings. Interestingly, it didn't identify the VPN connection in Windows 7 until we opened it, possibly because our VPN tool, like Dialupass, is a standalone program that doesn't modify the Windows registry or file system. Dialupass has some valuable extras, too, such as an option not to display your passwords and user names, keeping them safe from roaming eyes. You can also extract dialup password lists, add header lines, select a grid view, and enable Tool Tips.

Dial-up Internet connections may be on the way out, but they're still the standard in many parts of the world, especially rural areas. Many broadband users maintain a dial-up account as a backup for when their main connection is down; they are especially likely to lose their passwords, and just as likely to need them the most. A tool like Dialupass, which is totally free and totally easy to use, too, can save the day when the fast pipe is clogged. NirSoft Freeware specializes in free, compact utilities that enhance the features and functionality of Windows systems. We've tried a lot of their tools and liked them all, and Dialupass is no exception--just don't try to pronounce it.
