Easily recover your lost credentials used for your account on some of the most commonly used instant messaging applications out there

editor's review






Many of those who love to chat online and use instant messengers usually choose to save the login passwords on their personal computers, although this convenience can put their accounts at risk. If not careful, someone else might take advantage of your account while you're away, or forget the password in the occurrence of an unexpected event.

Recover passwords from various apps

A tool like MessenPass can prove just how dangerous such a practice could be even if this utility is designed to help you recover the instant messaging password you forgot. The application scans a computer for installed messaging programs and shows them along with the username.

MessenPass comes in a very lightweight package and it doesn't require installation, so it is ready to run right out of the box. The application is compatible with a wide array of software solutions, including Windows Live Messenger, the old MSN Messenger and Yahoo! Messenger as well as Google Talk, Pidgin and Trillian to name a few.

Easy to use regardless of experience

There's one thing that needs to be made perfectly clear though: MessenPass only works if the user has decided to save the username and password inside the application for a faster login. This means you cannot use it to reveal passwords for any other accounts.

We've tested the app with a couple of the supported instant messengers and it recovered the passwords instantly. MessenPass also comes with a handy function that is designed to help you manually select the installation folders for the chat programs in case you didn't use the default location or if you're using portable versions of those apps.

In conclusion

All in all, MessenPass is a great solution if you don't remember your messenger password anymore and since it's delivered as a very light package, it's definitely worth a try if you find yourself in a spot of trouble because of a lost IM passphrase.
