Is "Recuva v.1.53.2078" an online installer?
Upon download, it says it can install now?
I am very wary of online installers ..... and prefer not to use them.

WebBrowserPassView v2.10

Andrew Lee on 12 Feb 2021
  • 607KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 30 Jun 2020
  • Suggested by guinness

WebBrowserPassView is a password recovery tool that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer, Firefox-based and Chromium-based Web browsers. 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.

Currently, WebBrowserPassView cannot retrieve the passwords if they are encrypted with a master password.

To work with Chrome and Opera portable versions, go to 'options' and set the location of the portable browser folder. Select the user data folder in Chrome, and wand.dat for Opera. (Thanks to user "deer".)

Works great here. It only displayed my login password in the table, but switching to ASCII mode revealed my WEP encryption keys, as well as other details.


Nirsoft certainly offers useful apps! I use their Metar Weather every day. Nirsoft's Wireless Network Watcher is quite handy, too, because in addition to my home router, there's a free public one in my vicinity; it's often flakey when under heavy use, but thanks to Nirsoft, I can check on the conditions in advance.

MIKLO on 2017-07-19 15:34

NirSoft has great software, of which I use many different Apps that are so very helpful. When I have a problem or even if I'm just trying to find something NirSoft is usually my first stop to see what they have in the way of Software to help me find, fix, or understand something I'm trying to do. Thanks so much for the many years of help I have received from NirSoft, I'm always amazed at the new things that become available to make my life easier along with many other people. Thanks again Nirsoft.

This is by FAR the ABSOLUTE BEST recovery software I've ever used. I do wish that it had a window interface... but it just recovered files that would've taken me 2 hours to recreate. Fantastic. (By the way... I tried 3 other favorites including RECUVA before using this. None of them worked. This did. I think RECUVA probably would've worked with a deep scan, but I don't have the 2 hours to sit and wait for that hope!)

The functionality of this Photorec *free* program is great. The fact that it is free is even better. I've tried it, I like it, i will use it again and I WILL DONATE (honest guv). Fair is fair. Good Karma.

TestDisk is a powerful drive and data recovery software that is designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again. This can be caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses, or of course human error (such as accidentally deleting your partition table).

The program is cross-platform with recovery tools for a long list file systems and includes the also-portable recovery software PhotoRec.

Note: Use with caution; it's recommended that you read the documentation and take your time. The software can easily made dramatic and difficult-to-reverse system modifications.

@juverax: given the nature of the program, I think I'd prefer to list non-beta tools in the entry, as they are presumably the most reliable. Still, good to see they're still making progress. I love this program.

Why is MailPassView listed as a Similar/alternative app? MailPassView's function is much narrower. It only recovers passwords from email clients, and does not look for product keys. recALL recovers passwords from many different classes of program and also finds license keys. You don't even put the two programs in the same category. You have recall listed under Security - Product Key Recovery, while you have MailPassView under Security - Password Recovery.
