Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

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.
