Reveal/recover/monitor lost password behind asterisks (***)


BulletsPassView is a password recovery tool that reveals the passwords stored behind the bullets in the standard password text-box of Windows operating system and Internet Explorer Web browser. After revealing the passwords, you can easily copy them to the clipboard or save them into text/html/csv/xml file.

BulletsPassView is the successor of the old 'Asterisk Logger' utility, with some advantages over the older tool:
  • BulletsPassView doesn't reveal the password inside the password text-box itself. The password is only displayed in the main window of BulletsPassView, while the password text-box continues to display bullets.
  • BulletsPassView also supports Windows 7/Vista/2008, while Asterisk Logger failed to work in these new operating systems.
  • BulletsPassView also reveals the passwords stored in the password text-box of Internet Explorer.
  • BulletsPassView supports command-line options to save the current opened password boxes into text/html/csv/xml file.
  • BulletsPassView is a unicode application, which insures that passwords with non-English characters will be extracted properly.

System Requirements

This utility works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows 2000 and up to Windows 7/2008. If you want to extract passwords from x64 application, you have to use the x64 version of BulletsPassView.

Know Limitations

This utility works fine with most password text-boxes, but there are some applications that don't store the password behind the bullets, in order to increase their security. In such cases, BulletsPassView will not be able to reveal the password. 
Here's some examples for applications that BulletsPassView cannot reveal their passwords:
  • Chrome, Firefox, and Opera Web browsers.
  • Dialup and network passwords of Windows.

Start Using BulletsPassView

BulletsPassView doesn't require any installation process or additional dll file. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - BulletsPassView.exe
When you run BulletsPassView, it makes a first scan to locate passwords text-boxes that are currently on the screen. If it finds any password, it'll be displayed on the main window. In order to make another scan, simply choose 'Refresh' under the view menu or press F5. There is also 'Auto Refresh' option under the Options menu. If you turn it on, BulletsPassView will automatically scan for new password text-boxes every few seconds. Be aware that the 'Auto Refresh' feature might be slow on some computers, especially if there are many opened windows.

Password Monitoring Software


SniffPass is small password monitoring software that listens to your network, capture the passwords that pass through your network adapter, and display them on the screen instantly. SniffPass can capture the passwords of the following Protocols: POP3, IMAP4, SMTP, FTP, and HTTP (basic authentication passwords). 
You can use this utility to recover lost Web/FTP/Email passwords.

System Requirements

SniffPass can capture passwords on any 32-bit Windows operating system (Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista) as long as WinPcap capture driver is installed and works properly with your network adapter. 
You can also use SniffPass with the capture driver of Microsoft Network Monitor, if it's installed on your system. You can download and install the latest version of Microsoft Network Monitor from here.
Under Windows 2000/XP (or greater), SniffPass also allows you to capture TCP/IP packets without installing any capture driver, by using 'Raw Sockets' method. However, this capture method has the following limitation:
  • On Windows XP/SP1 passwords cannot be captured at all - Thanks to Microsoft's bug that appeared in SP1 update...
    This bug was fixed on SP2 update, but under Vista, Microsoft returned back the outgoing packets bug of XP/SP1.
  • On Windows Vista with SP1, only UDP packets are captured. TCP packets are not captured at all.
  • On Windows 7, it seems that 'Raw Sockets' method works properly again, at least for now...

Using SniffPass

In order to start using SniffPass, follow the instructions below:
  1. Download and install the WinPcap capture driver or the Microsoft Network Monitor driver.
    You can also try to capture without any driver installation, simply by using the 'Raw Socket' capture method, but you should be aware that this method doesn't work properly in many systems.
  2. Run the executable file of SniffPass (SniffPass.exe).
  3. From the File menu, select "Start Capture", or simply click the green play button in the toolbar. If it's the first time that you use SniffPass, you'll be asked to select the capture method and the network adapter that you want to use.
    After you select the desired capture options, SniffPass listen to your network adapter, and display instantly any password that it find.

Get passwords of another computer on your network ?

Many people ask me whether SniffPass is able to get passwords from another computer on the same network. So here's the answer. In order to grab the passwords from other network computers:
  1. You must use a simple hub to connect your computers to the network. All modern switches and routers automatically filter the packets of the other computers, so the computer that runs SniffPass will never "see" the passwords of other computers when you use a switch or a router.
  2. Your network card must be able to enter into 'Promiscuous Mode'.
  3. You must use WinPCap or Network Monitor Driver as a capture method.
  4. For wireless network: Most wireless network cards (or their device drivers) automatically filter the packets of other computers, so you won't be able the capture the passwords of ther computers. However, starting from Windows Vista/7, you can capture passwords of wireless networks that are not encrypted, by using Wifi Monitor Mode and Network Monitor Driver 3.x.
