While RAR archives are slowly becoming a thing of the past, there are still many of them online, and many of them have passcodes; RAR Password Unlocker's sole objective is to make cracking the passwords as easy and efficient as possible.

A major problem with the aging Internet is that many archive maintainers spontaneously leave without publishing passwords online. People downloading archives may wait a good amount of time for them to finish, just to be told that it is protected by a password they could not possibly know. This is where RAR Password Unlocker comes in.

This lightweight tool only runs on Windows. Of course, like any other tool, it's impossible for this to unlock ALL passwords. It relies on "rainbow tables" and bruteforce password attempts. While it runs fairly quickly, the tool has become old, and it is not as efficient as some newer tools are. Unfortunately, many novice users assume that this can crack ANY archive's password quickly, and this simply is not the case. If you have reasonable expectations, this can be a nice tool to have on hand.

Finally, there are many tools out there like this one, but this is one of the few that is completely free. It is not a trial, it is freeware. Therefore, if you're ok with having to wait a good amount of time and with the possibility that you will never get the password to the file, this is a good route to go. It could be faster, but it's hard to complain about a tool that's free.

Pros:

  • Completely free password cracker
  • Lightweight application that does its job
  • Highly portable, ready to go

Cons:

  • Can take a long time to get passwords
  • Sometimes will not be able to recover password
  • Old interface
