Zip Password Finder is a handy tool which was developed in order to help you decrypt password-protected ZIP files.
The installation process is smooth and does not offer to install third-party products. After you complete it, you are greeted by a plain interface, which can be used with great ease by any type of person, regardless of their previous experience with computers. Aside from that, the design it sports is a bit outdated, and closely resembles the one used in the Windows 98 and 95 operating systems.
In order to retrieve your forgotten password, you are required to upload the ZIP file in question, select the types of character sets the passkey might contain (just characters, just numbers, both and whitespace), input minimum and maximum length, and just press the “Go" button. It is also possible to provide the app with a custom pattern, so as to find the password easier.
It is important to understand that this process might take anything from a few seconds to minutes, depending on the passkey’s length, types of characters used and your computer’s performance.
In Softpedia tests, on a 64-bit Windows 8 system, we have found that, on a few occasions, regardless of the uploaded ZIP, the detected password was the same, a pretty major bug considering the purpose of this utility.
Help contents are provided online, while the program does not put a strain on your computer’s performance, as it uses low CPU and memory.
Taking all of this into consideration, Zip Password Finder is a pretty decent piece of software, yet it is important to keep in mind that it will not always succeed to decrypt your ZIPs.
