Open password-protected ZIP archives without a password

In this article I would like to talk about how to open corrupted archives
Using the online service "Unzip-Online"
Installing Passper for ZIP
The first method to obtain passwordless access to encoded archives is to go to the Unzip-Online.com website. This online tool for unpacking archive data supports the formats “.zip”, “.rar”, “.7z” and “.tar”, but the size of attached objects cannot exceed 200 MB. Next, step-by-step instructions will be given for working with the Unzip-Online.com online platform under consideration.
Step 1: Open your browser, go to Unzip-Online.com and click on the “Uncompress files” button
Step 2: Click “Browse ...” and download the password-protected archive file from which you want to remove restrictions
Step 3: After downloading the archive, click “Uncompress file”, after which after a while, depending on the speed of the Internet connection, a link will appear for downloading the unlocked archive.
Passper for ZIP.
The second method, which in our opinion is the most preferable, is to use the functionality of the Passper for Zip program. This software is a very powerful software tool that can decrypt archive files in a few seconds using four exclusive key phrase selection algorithms.
Download for free
Step 1: Download and install “Passper for Zip” from the official website of the developers, following the recommendations of the installation wizard
Step 2: Add the encrypted ZIP file from your computer by clicking the “+” icon in the main menu of the application
Step 3: Now you should choose one of four decryption algorithms, among which:
“Combination Attack”, which allows you to select a passphrase by rearranging various combinations of certain letters and characters that must be exactly present in the password
Mask Attack is used if the user remembers fragments or special characters from the keyword, which makes it possible to unlock the archive very quickly
Dictionary Attack selects keys based on user or shared dictionaries
Brute Force Attack will sort through all possible combinations of letters and symbols, but such a method can take a very long time, depending on the complexity of the key phrase.
Step 4: At this stage, it remains to click “Next” to start the decryption process, after which a working password will be displayed, which must be copied and pasted when opening a locked archive.
