Have you ever downloaded an archive from the internet, which cost you quite a long time to find the exact information you need, and when you extract the archive, it asks you for a password! Oh, Jesus! Why does this happen to me? It must be very frustrating and you might wonder if there is an easy way to unlock Zip password.
Calm down. You actually have a way. To solve the password problem you need the help of a software tool called ZIP Password Unlocker which unlock password-encrypted ZIP files and supports strong AES encryption found in any version of WinZip and other Zip files. Then let’s get started and see how it works to unlock password protected Zip archive for us.
I. Select the Zip File that You Want to Unlock Password For
You must have noticed the “Open” button on the interface. All you should do is press this button, find the destination folder that contains password protected Zip files, and then click “OK” to finish file importing.
II. Select an Attack Type to Unlock Zip Password
ZIP Password Unlocker could use three different ways for unlocking password based on the attack types it uses.
Try Dictionary Attack to unlock ZIP password if you are not sure which password you used in the Zip file. Make sure that you put your frequently used or possible passwords in a text file so as to give some reference for the program. Brute-force with Mask Attack works well if 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 rest to the program, which can recover the password, even though it takes relatively longer time.
III. Define Selected Attack Type
If you choose Brute-force with Mask Attack or Dictionary Attack you need to define the attack type after choosing. To explain this we take Brute-force with Mask Attack as an example. The picture below shows items you could set in order to define this attack.
If you remember that your password is comprised of no more than 6 characters, you could set Max Length to 6. Besides length of the password, you are also allowed to set Character Set. Set properly and accurately, the password unlocking process will be largely improved.
IV. Click “Start” to Begin Unlocking Password
You are just one step away from getting your lost password now! Click “Open” to allow the program begin password cracking process. When the decryption finishes, you will find a window displaying your lost password.
With ZIP Password Unlocker I believe you will never be bothered by forgetting Zip password, and you could now feel free to download any Zip archive you want!
