QBW Password allows you to perform several tasks:

Security Audit
QBW Password scans your company file for sensitive data (e.g.: CC Numbers, SSNs, Tax IDs, SINs, EIN, Bank accounts, etc.) accessible without any credentials. If you have to share your qbw / qba file or transfer (send) it using unprotected channels it is good idea to check it first.

Security Cleanup:
What is security cleanup? QBW and QBA files are database files and the only thing database is not really designed to do is to remove data. It will mark it as deleted or create a new page and mark old one as deleted. If new record is shorter than the remaining part of the old one can be in database forever. To make things worse database pages are not cleaned during initialization, so "empty space" is goldmine of SQL queries and images of application memory. Deleted data is still in your file for quite some time, including sensitive data, and security cleanup allows you to wipe database "empty space".

Password Replacement:
Database password verification values can be replaced easily to restore access to company file data. Sensitive data encryption keys are usually easily recoverable, thus access can be restored in full. Just open your file and check keys recovery status.

Password Recovery:
Password search is always an option and QBW Password allows you to set several attacks in queue (dictionary, sequentially based on a charset and length selected or as combination of dictionaries, sequences and fixed parts. You can split password in parts and set each part independently with virtually endless number of combinations. Additional modifications are available including unique keyboard layouts-aware recovery technique, char replacement (e.g. I or i with 1), etc. 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 QuickBooks password recovery.

What is password recovery speed?
Password recovery speed is variable depending on additional information recoverable from the file, Admin username, etc.
