How long does it take to recover a password?

It varies greatly depending on the computing power of your PC and the password strength. To shorten the time you need to recover a password, please follow the advice given in the Detailed instructions section.

Can sheet passwords be recovered?

No, Free Word and Excel Wizard doesn't recover sheet passwords. They are not secure and can be easily removed. For sheet, workbook and modify passwords we can recommend Password Lastic software – it’s the best among several solutions we tested.

What if the file contains sensitive information?

Our program utilises resources of your own computer and isn't connected to any remote servers, so you don't need to upload your files to the Internet or even have Internet connection for it to work. We value your privacy and don't collect any information about your system or your files.

Are there any paid options?

No, Free Word and Excel Wizard is true to its name – you don't need to pay for any of its features.
