Skype Password is a witty application that can recover lost or forgotten passwords stored inside Skype by decrypting the hash code that the IM uses to save the credentials.
Although Skype has a few years of existence, the presence of Skype password recovery utilities on the software market is rather scarce. This is mostly because of the approach that Skype uses in order to keep tabs on login information, which requires complex and time consuming recovery solutions.
Of course, there’s always the classic method of resetting your Skype password, but for this to be completed you need an Internet connection and also, the email you used for your account and the chances of not knowing that address are higher than expected.
Skype Password is one of the few applications that manage to deal with Skype in offline mode and succeeds while doing so. It can only achieve its purpose provided that Skype stored your credential info locally - that is if you have enabled the automatic sign in process.
The accounts and passwords are saved under the form of a hash code in Skype, which means that in order to retrieve them, a great deal of decryption algorithms are required and moreover, depending on the password length, the task can also be time consuming.
In terms of the efforts you have you to put into the process, these are very light and involve launching the application and pressing a button. On the other hand, the efforts made by the application are heavy and may reflect on the system resources, which is not unexpected, we might add.
The average processing speed that Skype Password is capable of is of 20,000,000 passwords per second on a quad-core CPU, which is an incredible amount and explains the resource consumption.
Overall, Skype Password is definitely worth your attention if you’re looking for an application that can bring back such valuable information, taking into consideration that there aren’t many other choices.
