    WebBrowserPassView is a password recovery tool that reveals the passwords stored by the following Web browsers: Internet Explorer (Version 4.0 - 9.0), Mozilla Firefox (All Versions), Google Chrome, and Opera. This tool can be used to recover your lost/forgotten password of any Website, including popular Web sites, like Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and GMail, as long as the password is stored by your Web Browser.

    After retrieving your lost passwords, you can save them into text/html/csv/xml file, by using the 'Save Selected Items' option (Ctrl+S).


    System Requirements And Limitations

    This utility works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows 2000, and up to Windows 7, including 64-bit systems. Older versions of Windows (Windows 98/ME) are not supported, because this utility is a Unicode application.
    Currently, WebBrowserPassView cannot retrieve the passwords if they are encrypted with a master password. Support for master password will probably be added in future versions.
    Currently, WebBrowserPassView cannot retrieve passwords from external hard-drive. Support for that might be added in future versions.
    On Internet Explorer 7.0-9.0, the passwords are encrypted with the URL of the Web site, so WebBrowserPassView uses the history file of Internet Explorer to decrypt the passwords. If you clear the history of Internet Explorer, WebBrowserPassView won't be able to decrypt the passwords.
    On Google Chrome - passwords originally imported from Internet Explorer 7.0-9.0, cannot be decrypted.

    Version 1.10:

    Added option to choose the desired Opera password file (wand.dat).
    Imporved the detection of Opera password file (wand.dat).

    Using WebBrowserPassView
    WebBrowserPassView doesn't require any installation process or additional DLL files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - WebBrowserPassView.exe

    After running it, the main window of WebBrowserPassView displays the list of all Web browser passwords found in your system. You can select one or more passwords and then copy the list to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) or export them into text/xml/html/csv file (Ctrl+S).

    False Virus/Trojan Warning
    WebBrowserPassView is a tool that retrieves secret passwords stored in your system, and thus your Antivirus may falsely detect this tool is infected with Trojan/Virus. Click here to read more about false alerts in Antivirus programs.

    Translating WebBrowserPassView to other languages
    In order to translate WebBrowserPassView to other language, follow the instructions below:

    * Run WebBrowserPassView with /savelangfile parameter:
    WebBrowserPassView.exe /savelangfile
    A file named WebBrowserPassView_lng.ini will be created in the folder of WebBrowserPassView utility.
    * Open the created language file in Notepad or in any other text editor.
    * Translate all string entries to the desired language. Optionally, you can also add your name and/or a link to your Web site. (TranslatorName and TranslatorURL values) If you add this information, it'll be used in the 'About' window.
    * After you finish the translation, Run WebBrowserPassView, and all translated strings will be loaded from the language file.
    If you want to run WebBrowserPassView without the translation, simply rename the language file, or move it to another folder.
