Editors' Review

+

View hidden passwords on many dialog boxes with this utility, but don't expect it to work for all Web sites as promised.

Password Spectator's interface is really a dialog box that gives instructions for using the program. It's a slightly convoluted operation. Hold the Control key and float your mouse to the password. Press the secondary mouse button to display your password in a separate window. The program worked for all Windows-based password dialogs, but failed to reveal passwords on the major e-mail Web sites we tried.

This is a freeware tool, and some users may not mind the multiple steps needed to reveal passwords. However, we have found numerous freeware applications that outperform this utility. While anyone from novice users to system administrators could use Password Spectator, you might want to spend a little extra time testing other application in this category.

    "Works great!"

    March 30, 2010   |   By bg52

    Version: Password Spectator 3.2

    Pros

    It did exactly what I needed; revealed a hidden password.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind. If you can follow simple instructions, then you can use this program.

    Summary

    I was using a program (CuteFTP) which had a password as part of a specifc site login. As I've upgraded my computer's over the years, I brought the encrypted login's & passwords file along with the CuteFTP program. During my latest "upgrade" (finally got a Core 2 Quad), CuteFTP wouldn't accept my "key" (used too many times). This program allowed me to view the long-forgotten password for a critical FTP login, and I used it with FileZilla. Thanks Refog!

    "flagged as risk?"

    September 11, 2009   |   By t3hd0n

    Version: Password Spectator 3.2

    Pros

    its free? might work as it says but...

    Cons

    symantec antivirus quarantined the file mid download

    Summary

    risk security URL here:
    http://securityresponse.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2006-062211-3549-99

    most important excerpt

    "PasswordSpectator is a password recovery tool. It can reveal and store passwords which are entered into Web sites and applications."

    so its quarientining the file for what it says it does, not because theres something more malicious in the background. for the people unlucky enough to be running a virus scan software that feels like 'protecting' them from cracking tools that pose no actual threat you'll have to disable your scanners
