editor's review





With Appnimi ZIP Password Unlocker you can retrieve lost or forgotten passwords to your ZIP archives using brute force or dictionary attacks. This is a simple-to-use software application that features advanced options wrapped up in a user-friendly interface. It can be handled by anyone.

Pay attention to the installer

The whole setup procedure doesn't take long. However, Appnimi ZIP Password Unlocker is heavily ad-supported, so make sure to carefully go through each wizard step and decline all third-party offers if you're not interested in installing additional components that the app doesn't actually need to work properly. If you don't rush through the wizard, you should be able to spot all tricks and make a clean setup.

Clear-cut interface and options

The interface consists of a standard window split into three panes, where you can specify input settings as well as tinker with brute force or dictionary attack mode. After pointing out the ZIP archive, you can specify the destination of the new archive which will be reconstructed from the original one, as well as define the password minimum and maximum length.

Brute force and dictionary attack mode

In brute force attack mode, Appnimi ZIP Password Unlocker takes into account all uppercase and lowercase letters, along with numbers and a few symbols, and tries various combinations until finding the right one that matches the key. This string of characters can be customized, though, and you can add a prefix or suffix.

The dictionary attack mode is simpler and faster. The application gives you the possibility to create a plain text document with multiple passwords to try out, one key per line. Using this method means that you already have an idea of what the password may be.

Evaluation and conclusion

The tool worked smoothly in our tests, without triggering the OS to hang, crash or prompt error messages. On the other hand, Appnimi ZIP Password Unlocker is heavily ad-supported and it's difficult to make a clean setup. Nevertheless, you can test it for yourself.
