Asterisk Password Review

Fernando Ortega
Uncover hidden passwords behind asterisks
A review of Asterisk Password by Fernando Ortega

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:
  • Uncovers passwords from Dialog boxes, Internet Explorer pages and ActiveX controls
  • Reveals passwords from 32 and 64-bit applications (including IE 64-bit)
  • Shows MS Protected Storage and Local Security Authority (LSA) Secrets contents
  • All passwords are recovered instantly
  • Supports Multilingual and Unicode passwords
  • Easy to use and user friendly interface with a full-scale log system

Asterisk Password is licensed as Shareware for the Windows operating system / platform from password recovery software and can be used as a free trial until the trial period ends (after an unspecified number of days). The Asterisk Password 2.0 demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions and is not necessarily the download of the full version.
