Excel Password Recovery

What are the Chances of Recovering a Lost Password?

We offer you a free MS Excel password recovery try with a search through a database of 3 million of the most popular passwords. This work is done very quickly (from a few seconds to a couple of minutes), and is successful in 22% of cases.

If no password is found, then we can start searching for the lost password through the 20+ billion passwords database. It is a paid service, see the prices below. According to our internal statistics, the probability of a successful password recovery in this case is about 61%. MS Office 2003 Excel documents and its earlier versions are processed fast: within a few minutes. A later version of Excel documents may be processed longer, up to 24 hours.

For more information see the page “Recovery Chances.”

How to Remove the Password From the Excel Document?

This can easily be done if you already know the password. Just follow the instructions.

If you do not know the password, upload the document to the LostMyPass and start the password recovery process. After it is successful, you will receive the document password, and then you can open it and remove the password protection yourself.

* You pay only for a successful password recovery, after the job is done.

** We systematically search through all possible password variants according to the specified mask. To build the proper mask, we need all the information about the password structure, including its maximum length and the character set. A blind search through all possible password variants is useless. Just imagine, finding a 10-character password blindly, even with our high-performance cluster, would take thousands of years because there are more than 67 quintillion (67 * 1018) possible variants. You can calculate the number of password options and the approximate search time online with our Brute Force calculator.

*** 100% successful password recovery is guaranteed only if you have specified the correct mask. We will not be able to recover the password successfully if its mask parameters, including the character set and length, are incorrect. So, please, order a mask password recovery only if you know for certain the password structure: its maximum length and the character set.
