Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is a zip password? (Definition)

A Zip file is a file format for archiving other files with compression. The files contained in the archive can be protected by a password. This is the password for the Zip file.

How to find the password of a Zip file?

The only way to recover a Zip password is to test them all.

Select the Zip file on your device and click Find.

How to speed up password search?

The search is a time-consuming job (usually several hours), it is recommended to limit the search according to the size of the password, and the characters used.

Example: A 3-character password containing only lowercase letters requires 17576 attempts, while it will require 238328 attempts (13 times more) if it consists of uppercase, lowercase and digits.

dCode uses the resources of your browser and your device, the more powerful it is, the faster the calculations will be.

NB: This Zip cracker is a free and online tool, there are applications (sometimes paid) to install on your computer/phone which will not be limited by the browser and therefore probably more effective.

How does Zip password cracker work?

The tool creates the list of possible passwords based on the selected characters and the assumed length of the password and attempts to extract a file from the zip archive.
