editor's review




Cisco Password Recovery Tool is a software program that provides users with a simple means of recovering their Cisco router access passwords.

The upper hand of a portable app

This tool is portable and thus, the installation process can be bypassed. This also means that, unlike installers, it is not going to add any new items to the Windows registry and hard drive without your approval and it is not going to leave any kind of traces behind after its removal.

Another important aspect is that if you move the program files to an external data device, you can run Cisco Password Recovery Tool on any computer you have been granted access to, by simply clicking the executable.

Clear-cut GUI

The interface you come by presents a pretty simple build, as it only consists of a few buttons, some boxes and a pane with instructions on how recover your passkey. It becomes quite clear that all types of users can learn how to handle it properly, including the ones with little or no previous experience with computers.

Types of passwords supported and performance

This application enables you to retrieve type 7 passkeys for your Cisco router, including authorization key for RADIUS and TACAS server, router access password via the console, as well as user and router access passkeys.

You are required to input the encrypted key, which can be found in the router’s configuration file, in the appropriately-labeled box and just click the “Decrypt” button. The result is going to be displayed almost immediately, without putting a strain on the computer’s performance, as the amount of resources required is minimal.


To wrap it up, Cisco Password Recovery Tool is a pretty efficient and reliable piece of software. The interface is suitable to all types of users, the response time is good and our tests did not register any kind of errors.
