7 Funny Facts Passware Discovered About Passwords

1. Size does not always matter. Even with passwords. The longest password ever recovered instantly with Passware product was:
wu*EdERu?eSpuQ3qUdremuphetheBadAge79Wast6-ewega3Hasaku4R2thepruq (64 characters)

2. A pet’s name appears in passwords 3 times more frequent than a name of any other member of a person’s family.

3. Demand for Passware password recovery products is 40% higher right after Christmas and New Year holidays and shortly before the Tax Time.

4. 30% of all password recovery requests that Passware Support receives from women are for encrypted files of their (ex)husbands and boyfriends, compared to only 5% of all the requests from men.

5. To protect a personal electronic diary and photo archives an average person sets a password 2 times stronger than to protect his/her corporate and financial documents.

6. Many important business and confidential files are protected with romantic passwords, such as “LoveSue”, “eternity”, “marryme”, “forgiveus”. This proves that strict and imperturbable employers are subtle and romantic in nature.

7. Decryptum (Passware’s online instant password removal service) plays a significant investigative role in a new detective novel appearing soon in Europe.

And once connected to Physical Memory and Disk it takes Passware Kit Forensic roughly 20 minutes to display the complete Bitlocker recovery key.
