Password length

Top  Previous  Next


This is one of the most important options affecting checking time. You can check all 4-character (and shorter) passwords in a few minutes. But for longer passwords you have to have patience and/or some knowledge about the password (including the character set which has been used, or even better – the mask).


AOPR allows you to set a Password Length range by defining the Minimal and Maximal Length. These values can be set using the "Password Length" controls at the "Brute-Force" tab. The minimal length cannot be set to a value greater than maximal one. In this case the appropriate error message will be displayed.


If the Minimal and Maximal Lengths are not the same, the program tries the shorter passwords first. For example, if you set Minimal=3 and Maximal=7, the program will start from 3-character Passwords, then try 4-character ones and so on -- up to 7. While AOPR is running, it shows the current Password Length, as well as the current Password, Average Speed, Elapsed and Remaining Time, and Total and Processed number of passwords (some of these Parameters are displaying in the "Extended Statistics" Dialog. All of this information except average speed and elapsed time, which are global, is related only to the current length.
