Despite the advent of cloud service, many continue to back up their smartphones and Pads to their computers: some do not trust cloud storage, others are just more familiar with connecting the device to popular music service. As a rule, backups created on a computer are often protected by passwords (just tick one-off), and in many cases, Itunes backup password is forgotten over time. Even in our editorial office, there are a couple of such claims. Therefore, we started searching for a solution to this problem and, surprisingly, discovered an application that allows you to recover the password from a backup.
In the new version of the rescue application with the number 3.7.0, the developers added the functionality for recovering passwords from backups of iOS devices in popular music service. Just start the program and select the “Recover from popular music service Backup” section. The application itself will detect all backup copies of the devices on your computer, including password-protected ones. Choose the last one and move on to the next step.
After a notification appears that this backup is password-protected, you can enter a password (if you remember it) or click “Forget Password”. In the next window, you will need to enter some details about your password: for example, does it contain special characters, numbers or capital letters. It is also necessary to set the minimum and maximum password length and password recovery speed. Such suggestive information is required since it is known only to the owner of the device – this minimizes the risk of malicious applications using the application.
Next, the “magic” begins! The speed of which depends on the complexity of the backup password and the version of the operating system on the basis of which the backup was created. If the password is very complicated, get ready to wait about an hour, in other cases, hacking happens pretty quickly.
Upon completion of the operation, the application will display the backup password, with which you can open it. And it’s better to write it down for the future.
By the way, the popular music service password recovery feature is available for free. Users are asked to pay only for the lost data recovery function.
