Asterisks Password Viewer 2.70

Asterisks Password Viewer Editor's Review

Asterisks Password Viewer is a program designed to reveal passwords concealed by asterisks. Usually, for your own protection, passwords are hidden behind asterisks in order to prevent disclosure to curious eyes.

Hiding passwords behind asterisks is a very good option, in my opinion, but sometimes we may forget a password, especially in cases when we allowed Window to store it and auto-complete the needed form. The things usually appear when we reinstall the OS or certain applications.

Asterisks Password Viewer can save you the hassle of digging for forgotten passwords, by revealing them the moment you are typing them into the form. Simply install the program, allow it to run in the background, hold down the "Control" key and drag the mouse over the form. The password will be automatically displayed by the program. This trial version I have tested only displayed the first three characters, but it worked fine.

Important: The program will only display passwords used to secure Email clients (Outlook Express, The BAT!), FTP connections (FTP clients) or archives (ZIP, RAR). I tested it also on online forms, Yahoo! and Google mail, office documents and instant messaging programs, but it didn't work.


Drawbacks / flaws: It failed revealing passwords in Opera mail client.

In conclusion: A very good password revealer, but it still needs to perfected.
