CNET 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.
From Rixler Software:
Word Password Recovery Master was designed to resolve one of the most common problems in nowadays document flow. We all lost our passwords at least once. Usually the consequences are not that terrific. The issue is unpleasant but nothing more. However, if you forgot the password blocking the entire quarterly report you urgently need, or client report you are supposed to present tomorrow - the situation suddenly becomes much more dramatic. Word Password Recovery Master won't let you down if you need to quickly recover Microsoft Word document password. This simple yet surprisingly capable tool cracks Word document passwords like nuts, and the process never takes more than a dozen of second even for lengthy ones. The reason of such high cracking productivity is the advanced password server that possesses enough power to recover a password from encryption data sent to it in mere seconds. Importantly, the entire document is not needed for this procedure. Word Password Recovery Master only sends a block of encryption data, about 8Kb long. The program supports MS Word 97/2000/XP/2003/2007/2010 and all types of passwords from the password to open a document to VBA project password. And if it can't restore some password, it simply removes it from the document making it unprotected. Recovered or removed, in either case, you will be able to access your information again. And if you don't want others to steal those Word passwords from you, you better set a master password that will block the cracking functionality of the program and therefore will not allow intruders to crack your files easily.
What's new in this version: Version 4.0: New multi-lingual interface. Support for MS Word documents created in Mac OS. Password recovery for VBA projects. Ability to crack all Word document passwords by one click. Full unicode support.
