ElcomSoft has announced the release of the Facebook Password Extractor, a free tool to recover Facebooks’ user credentials that are stored or cached in popular Web browsers.
The user credentials, such as user account and passwords, are routinely stored or cached in Web browsers to speed up access to protected resources. While it is possible to extract cached passwords from each of the popular Web browsers, it has never been an easy task. Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera, Google Chrome and older versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer (v. 6 and earlier) use lighter security mechanisms that are easier to break. However, InternetExplorer 7, 8, and 9 employ an enhanced security model that makes extracting a cached password impossible without knowing the exact authorisation URL.
Facebook Password Extractor is the first free tool on the market to help users to recover lost and forgotten Facebook passwords from all popular Web browsers including enhanced-security Internet Explorer 7 to 9. This free for personal use (non-commercial) utility can instantly reveal cached login and password information to Facebook accounts. Supporting all versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer including IE9, Mozilla Firefox including Firefox 4, Apple Safari up to version 5, Opera up to version 11, and Google Chrome up to version 11, Facebook Password Extractor is the first free Facebook recovery tool to display multiple Facebook logins and passwords instantly and automatically.
Facebook Password Extractor supports the enhanced security model used in Internet Explorer 7 onwards, by including a small database containing exact Web addresses of all possible Facebook login pages.
Facebook Password Extractor can be downloaded now.
