Smartkey word password recovery Review
Smart key word password recovery comes in two versions. Standard and Professional. There is no much difference in features. But there is only on mojor difference ie., speed. Pro version performs fast compare to standard version. So I recommend you to go with Professional version. Otherwise you need to wait some hours to recover password with standard version.
As I said, you will get same features in two versions. It will give three features. With this you can recover or remove Word password. You can also search for password protected files.
1.Word Password Recovery
Once again, it will give three option to recover password.
- Brute-force attack: It well know process to find passwords. It tries all password possibilities. It takes so much time, but assures that it will recover password.
- Brute-force with mask attack: If you have some idea about your password, you can use this method to recover password. For ex:- your password is 12345678, you have remembered first two letter, last two letters and number of digits. Then you can use this option. It will have many possible settings so that you can recover password quickly.
- Dictionary attack: This option will search for predefined passwords. It is very quick but there is no guarantee to recover password.
I think initially, it is better to try dictionary attack. If it does not find password then you can go with first or second option.
2.Word Password Remover
With this option, You can remove word password. It uses online service to remove password. It works very fast to remove password. But it can not work for all word documents. When I tried, it could not detect .docx files. It works only for .Doc files.
3.Encrypted file searcher
This option helps to search encrypted files in your computer. It scans entire computer or you can choose particular folder. Scan is very fast. It finds encrypted files very fast. If you have many encrypted files to decrypt, you can use this option to search for your files.
It works fast to remove password and to scan files. But it takes some time to recover password. You need to wait for some time depends on your password complexity.
