The company that created this program from thegrideon, promises its software to reveal hidden passwords behind asterisks or other jumbled/hidden characters.
The premise behind the program is simple and that is to show passwords behind asterisks in programs like IE, Firefox and Chrome... though it doesn't always work. It works by dragging their lamp icon over a password field to reveal it.
We found the performance of the software to be okay and the layout to be quickly thought-out. To find hidden passwords, just drag the cursor icon over the password field. The program doesn't always work and sometimes wasn't able to recover hidden passwords. The program then saves passwords to a list.
The trial version will only recover a limited number of characters from the password field. You also are not able to copy and paste results. If you're looking for something more suitable for recovering forgotten passwords, try looking around the other password tools we list.
Asterisk Password can recover RAR passwords, recover ZIP passwords, recover FTP passwords and reveal hidden passwords.Asterisk Password features and highlights:
