Editors' Review

Password Cracker by G&G Software is a tiny, free, totally portable utility that can recover lost passwords from applications. Passwords are perhaps the weakest links in the cyber-security chain; if they're complex enough to be secure, you probably won't be able to remember them. Add the fact that every other site seems to require a password, and it's easy to see why far too many people end up using one or two simple passwords that are easy to remember, and easy to crack, too. You can write your passwords down on a piece of paper that you can look for and fail to find when you need it, or you can download and install this program.

Password Cracker downloads as a compressed file but runs as soon as you click the unzipped program file. The tool's interface is a tiny dialog, about the size of the average error message, with two text fields, labeled Test and View, and four buttons: Enable, Options, About, and Help. Other than some links to the program's Web site and some of the developer's other wares, that's it. However, the button's labels describe their functions clearly enough, so we started by checking the options, which are minimal, with check boxes to recover passwords in Internet Express or all of Windows. We checked the latter, opened a browser window, and navigated to a site that required a password log-in. We clicked Enable, hovered the mouse cursor over the password field (as delineated by asterisks), and Password Cracker displayed the alphanumeric password in the View field. We repeated the process with a Windows program that requires a log-on to open, with the similar success. The always-on-top option is handy since it keeps the little dialog from getting lost in a stack of open windows.

We installed Password Cracker 3.88, the latest version, in machines running Windows XP and Windows 7. The program performed its function in XP but not in Windows 7. Since the Windows 7 update is a recent release, it may be buggy, and we can't recommend Password Cracker to Windows 7 users until it performs reliably. Other Windows users can certainly benefit from it, especially the forgetful ones.

"Don't bother"

February 14, 2013  |  By christhewolf

2013-02-14 03:59:46  |  By christhewolf

 |  Version: Password Cracker 3.95

Pros

Absolutely nothing

Cons

No instructions, there's no even supported file types list. and it's NOT FREE!

Summary

Can't really imagine who need this... If you need free password recovery, there's Free Word Excel password recovery Wizard on CNET. If efficiency is most important and spending little money is not a problem to you, there's fast and affordable service www.Password-find.com

"Instructions say almost nothing"

November 08, 2012  |  By w_tom

2012-11-08 09:31:18  |  By w_tom

 |  Version: Password Cracker 3.92

Pros

Directions say how to install it. Nothing more.

Cons

Nothing says what it does; what passwords are recovered or how. Lkie so many others, I could not make it do anything productive.

Summary

I am very suspicious of what this software is doing. Maybe even installing malware that does something malicious days later?

"Installed it - tried it - deleted it!"

July 09, 2012  |  By landaise

2012-07-09 17:07:35  |  By landaise

 |  Version: Password Cracker 3.92

Pros

how do I say "none" in 10 characters?

Cons

Didn't do anything but made infuriating bleeping whenever I moved my mouse even though I turned off sounds and had given up trying to make it work.

Good idea but no use to me on my winXP PC.

Helpful hint on their forum, in answer to the question "how to uninstall?" = "delete all files"
