How to reveal passwords hidden under Asterisks

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed or get daily updates via E-mail. Thanks for visiting!

I have already discussed about a small but useful utility Asterisk Key to find hidden passwords in Internet Explorer. But scope of this application is not limited to web browsers only. It can also be used to reveal passwords hidden under asterisks from any windows applications like Google Talk, Yahoo Messenger etc.

How many times have you forgotten your saved passwords? It happens with everyone. But don’t worry. Things can be a lot easier after you learn how to use this software. 

All you have to do is to launch the application for which the password has to be found along with Asterisk Key. Then click on “Recover” button in Asterisk Key.

That’s it. You can see in the image below the password gets revealed along with the application name.


It’s very simple. Now a forgotten password hidden under asterisks is just a click away. Also, you can easily hack others stored passwords as well.


Download:- Asterisk Key

Any comments are whole heartedly appreciated.

P.S. Asterisk Key size is just 453 Kb and it does not work with Firefox. It’s up to you if you use if for hacking.

    Better be careful, Steve. Someone can easily steal your passwords and misuse it. You should keep on changing your passwords every now and then.
