Asterisk Key is a handy freeware password retrieval tool available for Windows systems. It is lightweight software smaller than 1 megabyte that can be stored on USB and used to access passwords that are visually obscured by asterisks or dots.

This software is part of a series of programs developed by Passware, relied on by the IRS, DOD, NASA, the Department of Justice, and Homeland security for fast assistance with information retrieval. Passware offers continuous support to all programs as well as a database of frequently asked questions for those seeking extra help during the password retrieval process. It is trusted by many businesses and will always be safe to download. 


It helps you retrieve password information that is hidden from sight.
  • Shows hidden passwords in your programs and browser
  • Quick and simple installation
  • Multilingual support for passwords in other languages
  • 100% free software

This software is easily installed on a small USB drive and can be used on the go, on any Windows system. It can be used at home to retrieve your own passwords, or at the office to assist employees with speedy retrieval. Because the password reveal is only temporary and does not access any databases or change information, the password in question can be revealed without compromising any of your Windows security measures.

Versions are available for home, business, as well as forensics. Asterisk Key is easy to understand and quick to use: After installation and boot-up, simply press the "recover" button to scan inputted passwords fast and visually display them. Results are instant. It may be used without restrictions on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Recovery results can be saved to small .TXT files.

If for any reason you are unsatisfied with this software, feedback can be sent directly from the program itself. Indexed tips, help, and support are also available offline.

This seem to be a useful software to use. It can useful for people who has a computer with windows. Also this product can be use with people with any windows type. This can be a useful software for and people who want to input passwords without restrictions.
This looks like a really interesting product, you are able to recover your 'hidden' passwords that are saved on your browser. I would find this very useful as I have forgotten a password before and counted the asterisks, but this will tell me the whole password which makes it very convenient to use. I like that you just need to download it via usb then use it anywhere!
