How to Break Password Protected ZIP File

I have forgotten my zip file password which is almost 16 characters long and consists of lower case and upper case letters with numbers and special characters. Guessing it is out of the question. Is there any way to break zip password?

Amit sinha

Just like the statement above, you want to keep important and personal Zip archive safe by creating long and complicated password, which, on the other hand, makes it hard for you to break password once you lost it. Is there a way to break such a complicated password?

In the past, it seems that only Harry Porter could help with such a puzzle, but now, with the continuous development of technology, it is possible to break password protected Zip file easily with small software tool.

The tool I am going to recommend is ZIP Password Breaker, a popular Zip password breaker with brilliant performance and user-friendly interface. See for yourself how the software works.

Break Password Protected ZIP File with ZIP Password Breaker

With only three steps, you would manage to break Zip file password.

Step 1. Add Password Protected Zip File to ZIP Password Breaker

On the main interface of the program, click “Open” and then with several clicks you could finish adding target Zip file to the program.

Step 2. Choose an Attack Type and Set Accordingly

There are totally three types of attacks. Any of the three attacks could help to break password protected Zip file password, though there is a little difference among these attacks.

Brute-force Attack: This method will try all combinations of password; as a result it requires relatively longer time. Choose it when password is long and complicated, and you have no clue about your password.

Brute-force with Mask Attack: Use this attack when you still remember part of your password, say the approximate minimum and maximum length of the password, the characters your password contains, and something like this.

Dictionary Attack: This attack is used by seeking for the password based on a built-in or self-created dictionary.

For the case in the beginning of this article, we’d better choose Brute-force with Mask Attack, and define the settings as below, which is in accordance with the description of the password.

Step 3.  Allow the Program to Start Breaking Zip Password

When complete Step 1 and Step 2, you click “Start” button on the bottom of the interface. The program will get the message and start breaking Zip password. A window will be displayed showing your password if breaking process goes successfully.

As far as I am concerned, using Zip Password Breaker to break password for Zip is the most efficient way. Besides, the user-friendly interface makes the program extremely easy to use. Next time you lost Zip file password, feel free to seek professional help from it.

Brute-force with Mask Attack works well if you still remember some of your password, for instance, length of the password.

How to Hack a ZIP File with Password

Normally, we suggest that you try “Dictionary” attack which requires you list all your frequently used passwords and save them as a text file for reference. And it’s better if you try the “Brute-force with Mask” attack when you still remember some of your password, for instance, length of the password. But if you cannot think of anything about the password you could try “Brute-force” attack, and leave the program to do all the decryption process, which requires a relatively longer time.

For example, if you choose Dictionary Attack, you would get the items under “Dictionary” to be set. Below is a picture of the items.

Step III. Finally you press the “Start” button in the menu to run the program.
