Smart keyword password recovery comes in two versions. Standard and Professional. There is no much difference in features. But there is only one major difference ie., speed. The Pro version performs fast compare to the standard version. So I recommend you to go with the Professional version. Otherwise, you need to wait some hours to recover your password with the standard version.

As I said, you will get the same features in two versions. It will give three features. With this, you can recover or remove Word password. You can also search for password protected files.

1. Word Password Recovery

Once again, it will give three option to recover password.

  1. Brute-force attack: It is a well-known process to find passwords. It tries all password possibilities. It takes so much time but assures that it will recover the password.
  2. Brute-force with Mask Attack: If you have some idea about your password, you can use this method to recover your password. For ex:- your password is 12345678, you have remembered the first two letters, the last two letters, and the number of digits. Then you can use this option. It will have many possible settings so that you can recover your password quickly.
  3. Dictionary attack: This option will search for predefined passwords. It is very quick but there is no guarantee to recover your password.

I think initially, it is better to try a dictionary attack. If it does not find a password then you can go with the first or second option.

2. Word Password Remover

With this option, You can remove the word password. It uses an online service to remove the password. It works very fast to remove the password. But it can not work for all word documents. When I tried, it could not detect .docx files. It works only for .Doc files.

3. Encrypted file searcher

This option helps to search encrypted files on your computer. It scans the entire computer or you can choose a particular folder. The scan is very fast. It finds encrypted files very fast. If you have many encrypted files to decrypt, you can use this option to search for your files.


It works fast to remove passwords and to scan files. But it takes some time to recover the password. You need to wait for some time depends on your password complexity.
