Asterisk Password Recovery is a small application designed for one specific purpose: reveal passwords hidden behind asterisk characters. The program can instantly show you the passwords that are saved by most Windows applications and programs such as Outlook Express, FTP Clients, or stored in websites using Internet Explorer. These programs usually store your login credentials to save you the time of typing the information every time you use them. In case you forget your password, this program can help you recover it. It works in a very intuitive way and does not need any type of configuration. You just drag the magnifying glass over the password field, and the letters behind the asterisks will be revealed in the main window of the program.
Asterisk Password Recovery works with most Windows applications and with Internet Explorer; no support for Chrome or Firefox is offered for the time being. The version you can download for trial shows only the first three characters of a password, which seems good enough to test its functionality.
- Works well
- Very easy to use
