To access encrypted RAR archives, you are required to enter the password used to protect them. If you do not have this password, you have two options – give up and delete the file or recover the password. Do you want to know how to decrypt RAR file? Then read this post to the end, as we will show you ways to carry out this operation effectively and safely.
Several websites provide RAR password decryption services. I am not referring to websites where you download the password decryption tools; I mean with these platforms, you can decrypt RAR password online. One such website is www.lostmypass.com. To decrypt RAR password online, you do not need to do any downloading; it’s all done on the website. LostMyPass will be our case study; below, you will learn how to decrypt an encrypted RAR file online with the help of this site.
Step 1: Open lostmypass.com on your internet browser.
Step 2: Find the field where you upload the RAR archive, browse for it on your computer, and import the file to upload it to their servers.
Step 3: Once you successfully upload the RAR file, it will begin to decrypt RAR password online. It may take some time, but after a while, you will see a “Download” button. Click “Download” to save the unlocked file.
If your file is not of sensitive nature, then feel free to decrypt RAR password online, but to maintain privacy, we do not recommend this method. The reason being that these websites save the data on their servers, and unlocking it means that whoever is at the other end of things gets a free pass to access your documents.
For the best results, I recommend that you opt for professional RAR password recovery software. The next methods will introduce two powerful password unlock tools and how to decrypt WinRAR files using them.
The first tool is called cRARK. cRARK is a free tool for unlocking encrypted RAR archives with a password of fewer than 29 characters. If you used other software before giving cRARK a test, the first thing you will notice with cRARK is its incredible speed. It uses a brute-force attack to decrypt WinRAR password protected files easily. However, it’s not all roses. cRARK does not have a graphical user interface, and all the operation is carried out on command line/terminal, and so it looks like cRARK was designed for geeks. But don’t be scared because it’s pretty easy to use when you get a hang of it. Below is how to decrypt WinRAR files using cRARK.
Step 1: Open the crack website and download the right cRARK version for your operating system.
Step 2: Run Command Prompt by pressing the Windows key and searching for “CMD”. Run commands
Step 3: In a command runs without error, then you only need to wait for your RAR archive password to get cracked. When that happens, you will be notified.
cRARK may be one of the fastest tools you can find to decrypt WinRAR password protected files, but the lack of a graphical user interface is a huge drawback. Also, cRARK has only the brute-force attack and limits you to cracking passwords with at most 28 characters. The third method below is perhaps more powerful than cRARK, has a beautiful interface, and features more password attack modes.
For a complete solution to decrypt WinRAR password protected files, you have Passper for RAR. With Passper for RAR, you are given 4 password attack modes to use based on what you know (or do not know) about the password and your specific needs. Passper for RAR is powered by robust algorithms that make its operation more reliable than the other methods on this list. Speaking of this list, Passper for RAR does not save your files to their server like our first method, and your data is guaranteed to be untouched following the password cracking operation. Although this tool is quite easy to use, we will still show you detailed steps on how to decrypt RAR file with it, but first, let us highlight some of the most important features of this program.
