editor's review





StarPW Revealer is a basic yet efficient piece of software created to help you recover forgotten or misplaced passwords, simply by enabling you to view past the string of asterisks in certain applications' access key fields.

The benefits of using standalone tools

Following the download process, you can just unzip the archive and launch the program, being able to run the executable straight away, due to the fact that it does not require installation.

As a result, you can place StarPW Revealer on a removable storage device, such as a USB stick, and take it with you wherever you go, regaining access to your most commonly used software both at home and at the office.

Drag and drop to recover your password from behind the asterisks

The utility is mainly aimed at NT systems, as they are in the habit of memorizing frequently used passwords for various FTP accounts or ISP dial-up connections. For this reason, StarPW Revealer may not be able to function in all environments.

The tool’s usage is fairly straightforward, requiring that you click on the crosshair icon and drag it over the targeted password field, its contents being unveiled in the corresponding field in StarPW Revealer’s window.

Subsequently, the access key will automatically be copied to clipboard, allowing you to paste it in the proper field, in order to authenticate. Thanks to this application, remembering your password is no longer a necessity, as you can discover it through a few simple mouse moves.

A straightforward password viewer

To sum it up, StarPW Revealer is an interesting program whose main purpose is to help you retrieve certain passwords stored by NT systems in your computer’s memory, enabling you to regain access to your accounts by discovering the characters behind the row of asterisks.
