Editors' review

This simple tool uses the publisher's computers to power through Word file password protection. Word Password Recovery Master's very basic dialog-sized interface has only a single user-enabled field. The program's Help manual is simple enough to teach novices to operate the program in seconds, but still offers enough information to satisfy the more experienced user.

The only real work for Word Password Recovery Master users is to select the Word file. Using the built-in browse function, users can quickly select a password-protected Word file. The app immediately displays which one of three password types has been applied to the file. If the file has a Write or Protection password it is immediately disabled. Open passwords are only disabled if the app can contact the publisher's servers. The automatic connection and operation requires no user intervention. The server sends the proper key to the user's app and disables the document protection.

Word Password Recovery Master doesn't actually recover passwords, but merely disables the protection. The demo will decrypt only the first 500 characters of a document. This tool is quick and works well. Novices to expert users should find it useful in the event of a lost Word password.

    "Dated; Support for newer Office formats needed"

    July 17, 2014   |   By StarWarsFan79

    Version: Word Password Recovery Master 4.0

    Pros

    Uses a remote server for password removal which makes it really quick

    Cons

    Lacks full support for files saved in Word 2007 and later versions

    Summary

    Similar to the program from the same developer for Excel that I have recently reviewed, support for the new versions of Word is rather limited. For old documents, this software can be helpful because it employs remote servers to unlock files. However, for those who have .docx documents to unprotect, I always recommend using online services that are much more efficient and support more file formats.Try www.password-find.com and other services.

    "it didn't work"

    February 24, 2014   |   By CookieBobe

    Version: Word Password Recovery Master 4.0

    Pros

    It didn't wok, I have downloaded and installed it and the program didn't run! Waiting for quite 12 hours and it still kept running! OMG!

    Cons

    runs too slow, have to wait for so long

    Summary

    It didn't work but I never gave up. Finally I download another tool, SmartKey Word Password Recovery, from http://www.recoverlostpassword.com/products/wordpasswordrecovery.html to unlock my Word 2010 document password successfully!
