Zip Password Recovery tool

Zip Password Recovery

  • Zip Password by is a feature-rich passwords recovery tool for ZIP, PKZip or WinZip (*.zip, *.zipx) archives.
  • Zip Password works with '.zip' (default and most common) as well as '.zipx' (AES-based) encryption methods.

Zip Password Recovery Features:

  • Several attacks can be configured and queued:info
  • "Save passwords to a file" option to verify search settings or to generate a new wordlist, etc.
  • Highly optimized code (SSE, AVX, AVX2) guarantees best
  • Utilizes NVIDIA and AMD Graphics processing units with a high-performance methods.
  • Supports up to 64 simultaneous processing threads (multi-CPU, multi-GPU).
  • Audio, script or web address based post-search notification.
  • Windows 7 - Windows 10.

Additional Details:

.zip (most common and default encryption):
Password recovery speed is very high (tens of millions passwords per second), but affected by several factors, such as number and size of files in archive, compression method used, etc.

Speed pass/s:
Intel® Core™2 Duo
T7500 @ 2.20GHz
Intel® Core™ i3
2100 @ 3.10GHz
Intel® Core™ i3
4130 @ 3.40GHz
> 20 000 000 > 40 000 000 > 50 000 000

.zipx (AES-128, 192 and 256 encryption):
The protection method is based on PBKDF2 and AES algorithms so the recovery speed is limited, but 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 password recovery tool for Zip files with AES encryption. Password recovery speed for very common hardware is available below.

.zipx password recovery speed:
The final password recovery speed is equal to CPUspeed + GPU(1)speed + ... + GPU(N)speed.
For example Zip (.zipx) AES-128 password recovery speed on
Intel i3 + AMD Radeon R9 270 = 51 000 + 670 000 = ~720 000 p/s.

Discrete GPUs
There are too many cards to list, but the main concept is simple: compute units (CUs) are the main building blocks of GPU calculation power. So card with 32 CUs is approximately twice faster than 16 CUs GPU of the same family and architecture.

AMD GPUs are very "password recovery friendly" and consistent despite architecture change from VLIW5 to VLIW4 and now to GCN.

+ GPU:
AMD Radeon™
HD 6770 (10 CUs)
AMD Radeon™
R9 270 (20 CUs)
+ 350 000 (35 000/CU) + 680 000 (34 000/CU)

As you can see below results with Kepler/Maxwell architecture and sm_35/sm_50 compute capabilities are much better in per CU performance than Fermi.

+ GPU:
GTX 470 (14 CUs, sm_20)
(just 2 CUs, Kepler, sm_35)
+ 230 000 (16 000/CU) + 140 000 (70 000/CU)

GPU performance is somewhat variable with number of factors including GPU/CPU combination and even driver version. Please contact us if your recovery speed is noticeable different from the data above.

Trial and Registration:

Trial version allows you to setup and test run any password search for up to 15 min per set.

With the "Home User" License, you can use the program for non-commercial purposes in non-business, non-commercial environment. To use the program in a corporate, government or business environment, you should purchase the "Business User" License.

Home User license is only $29.95 and Business User license is $44.95.

After payment processing is completed, you will immediately receive your registration key by email. The key should be entered into the evaluation version available from this page.
