Passware Kit (The Anniversary Edition) is a password recovery tool for Windows that uses several ways to recover passwords for accounts, websites, and documents. These methods include instant recovery, password reset, password removal, and brute force options.
The software lets the user recover a password for individual files, scan the computer for encrypted files and containers, recover passwords for network and internet-related connections, and reset a Windows administrator password. The app can recover passwords from 50 to over 280 file types, and from document passcodes to password managers and bitcoin wallets.
There’s no doubt that we are living in an age of heightened digital security awareness. Close to 50% of the US population will have or has had personal information stolen or compromised by the end of the year.
The average person has 23 online accounts for which they use passwords. The average business user has 190. Password managers help keep users organized, but every day, many people need to recover lost or forgotten passwords. While other security methods have become popular, password use is still the most common security measure in existence. And it is still the most flawed measure as well.
The basic version can decrypt passwords from ICQ, Microsoft Excel documents from version 4 to 2019, MS Explorer websites, web forms, and content advisors, MS OneNote sections from 2003-2019, Outlook email accounts, Powerpoint 2002-2019, MS Word files from every version available, and Windows Administrator secure boot options.
The early versions of Microsoft Office files make it easy for Passware Kit to deliver instant results. Later document versions require brute-force methods because the protection is more sophisticated, and Passware Kit uses hardware acceleration for machines with Nvidia and AMD GPUs.
The user can choose the kind of attack to use on each file type, or use a wizard to allow the software to choose for them. It shows the user the progress of scans and decryption processes and saves the password history for future use.
Passware Kit is available in five editions:
- Passware Kit Basic – Support 50+ filetypes (Full List)
- Passware Kit Standard – Support 80+ filetypes (Full List)

In a time where cybersecurity is at the forefront of national and international relations, it’s important to remember how much it works for individuals at home. The Passware Kit suite of software tools allows a broad range of security, both as an umbrella and a means to continue a policy of data safety.
