Editors' Review


Although it doesn't work on all masked passwords, this simple program can reveal some of your passwords hidden behind asterisks. PasswordReveal's truly simple interface is compact, but there's still a lot of empty space. One line of onscreen instruction is all that's provided, and all you'll need to use PasswordReveal. The executable isn't installed, but does depend on access to the included dynamic-link library.

The small interface holds only three fields for Passwords, Position, and HWND and one target icon that you drag over a masked password field. Without a Help file, novices won't understand that HWND stands for Handle Window. There's really no need for this application to display the number, but advanced users may use the information to gain access to the selected window.

The trial version displays only the first three password characters, but that's enough to test on known passwords and jog your memory on others. PasswordReveal fails to explain that it operates only on system-based passwords. This isn't a tool to reveal Web-based passwords. Some testers found the application incorrectly displayed passwords for items not selected.

PasswordReveal is a tool for a select tool designed for a specific need. While the demo proves the app works, the publisher's registration site is unavailable. We suggest you find one of the genre's effective password recovery tools.
