PowerPoint Password Recovery

PowerPoint Password by is an advanced and highly-optimized password recovery tool for MS PowerPoint Presentations and Templates (*.ppt, *.pptx, *.pot, *.potx). It works with files from all MS PowerPoint versions including the latest PowerPoint 2021. Password to open search basics are covered in Password Search FAQ. You may also check VBA Recovery Toolkit to access locked VBA Projects.

PowerPoint Password Recovery Features:

  • All MS PowerPoint versions are supported.
  • Write Protection passwords are recoverable instantly.
  • Several password to open search attacks can be configured and queued:info
  • "Output attacks to a file" option to verify search settings or to generate a new wordlist, etc.
  • Highly optimized code (SSE, AVX, AVX2, AVX-512) guarantees best
  • Utilizes NVIDIA and AMD Graphics processing units with a high-performance methods.
  • Utilizes modern Intel integrated GPUs.Intel GPU support
  • Supports up to 64 simultaneous processing threads (multi-CPU, multi-GPU).
  • Audio, script or web address based post-search notification.
  • Windows 7 - Windows 11.

PowerPoint "Password to Open":

Encryption methods used in MS PowerPoint 2007 - 2021 are based on strong encryption algorithms and password recovery or decryption cannot be guaranteed in a fixed timeframe. Encryption methods used in PowerPoint 2000 - 2003 allows faster recovery speed, but password search is still required. In order to recover these types of passwords, candidates have to be created based on dictionary, sequentially with a charset and length selected or as a combination of parts. PowerPoint Password allows you to set several attacks in a queue, split password in parts for precise search range setup with virtually endless number of combinations. Additional modifications are available including unique keyboard layouts-aware recovery technique, char replacements (e.g. S or s with 5), etc.

Password Recovery Speed:

We did our best to enhance this tool performance as well as the recovery speed with some advanced methods and it found to be the fastest tool for MS PowerPoint "password to open" recovery. Password recovery speed for very common hardware is available below to back this statement up.

CPU only:
PowerPoint 2003:
Intel® Core™2 Duo
T7500 @ 2.20GHz
Intel® Core™ i3
2100 @ 3.10GHz
Intel® Core™ i3
4130 @ 3.40GHz
Intel® Core™ i7
2600 @ 3.40GHz
~3 000 000 p/s ~6 000 000 p/s ~7 500 000 p/s ~12 000 000 p/s

PowerPoint 2007 - 2021:
The final password recovery speed is equal to CPUspeed + GPU(1)speed + ... + GPU(N)speed.
For example (PowerPoint 2007): Intel i3 + Intel HD 4400 GPU + NVIDIA GT 640 = 2 100 + 820 + 5 700 = ~8 600 p/s (passwords per second).

~230 p/s ~475 p/s ~1 050 p/s ~1 200 p/s
~30 p/s ~60 p/s ~135 p/s ~210 p/s

Integrated GPUs
Modern integrated GPUs (like Intel HD and Iris Graphics) can be used for password recovery acceleration. Integrated GPUs are not as powerful as dedicated (discrete) devices and often overlooked but can add up to 30% to CPU performance.

AMD and Nvidia GPUs
Compute units or stream multiprocessors (CU, SM, SMX, SMM) are the main building blocks of GPU calculation power, thus 32xCU GPU card is usually twice as fast as 16xCU GPU card of the same family and architecture running at the same frequency.
The table below shows expected performance per SM / CU for Nvidia and AMD GPUs as well as several actual examples.

Per SM at 1000 MHz
Tesla K80 (Kepler 2.0)
2x13xSMX, 820 MHz
Tesla V100 (Volta)
80xSM, 1380 Mhz
PowerPoint 2007: PowerPoint 2010: 2013 - 2021:
2000-3000 p/s 1000-1500 p/s 150-200 p/s
54 000 p/s
27 000 p/s
3 300 p/s
240 000 p/s
120 000 p/s
18 000 p/s
Per CU at 1000MHz
R9 270 (GCN 1.0)
20xCU, 950 MHz
RX 480 (GCN 4.0)
36xCU, 1250 MHz
PowerPoint 2007: PowerPoint 2010: 2013 - 2021:
1300-1600 p/s 700-750 p/s 100-150 p/s
27 000 p/s
13 800 p/s
2 400 p/s
60 500 p/s
30 900 p/s
5 100 p/s

It is important to mention that AMD and NVIDIA architectures are quite different and although AMD per CU performance is lower, there are more CUs per card in a similar price range. Moreover GPU performance is somewhat variable with number of factors including GPU/CPU combination and even a driver version. Please contact us if your recovery speed is noticeably different from the data above.

Trial Version Limitations:

Trial version can be used to check format and hardware compatibility. It allows you to setup and test run any password search for up to 15 min per set. Recovered password are hidden behind the asterisks.
