Password Spectator Pro
Password Spectator Pro is a small cross-platform utility designed with a single goal in mind: to help you recover lost or forgotten passwords that are hidden behind asterisks.
It sports a clean and simplistic interface that gives you a few instructions on how to decrypt passwords. In order to start the recovering process, you are required to open the window that displays the username and password with asterisks.
Basically, it proves to be extremely easy to work with this tool, as you only need to press the “Ctrl” key, move the mouse cursor to the password, and click on it. Password Spectator Pro automatically displays the recovered password in a small popup window.
The application keeps a log which contains details about the recovered passwords, URLs, titles and dates. The log cannot be exported to a file, but you may copy the information to the Clipboard.
Additionally, you can make the program remain on top of other utilities and choose the language for the interface.
During our testing we have noticed that the tool displays the lost passwords quickly and without errors throughout the entire process. However, Password Spectator Pro is able to recover the passwords only if the information is stored by the current application, otherwise it cannot decrypt data.
It manages to remain light on the system resources, so it doesn’t burden the overall performance of the computer, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.
All things considered, Password Spectator Pro proves to be a simple software solution able to recover forgotten passwords stored behind asterisks. Thanks to its intuitive layout, the entire process seems nothing but a child’s play.
