According to recent studies performed by Microsoft (prove link)
people don't really need frequent password changes.
Although currently many IT departments perform
sophisticated policies to force users to change
their security credentials once in a particular period, the above
mentioned research shows that such actions are actually useless.
The downside of these policies may be very well explained by the
typical user of our service. Once you have forgotten your password,
your life becomes miserable. You cannot access your data, you fail to open
password protected document and you might loose all your previous work.
This can result in significant loss of money
if you would not find a way to recover the most precious bits of information.
Fortunately, users of Microsoft Word where dealing with such problems
for quite a long time because there are several different ways to
specify password-protection in MS Word document.
For example, there is "password to open", which simply blocks access to the
data when user fails to enter the correct keyword while opening
the encrypted document. There is also protection which forbids any modification of data known as
password to modify.
Removing passwords in MS Word might be very resource consuming job especially
if you are using latest versions of office software.
However historically some older versions had major design flaws enabling
us to create software which can recover password successfully.
If you are lucky to use versions Word 2.0-6.0 and Word 95 you have a good chance to
restore your data instantly. However the success is based on the length of the
document since we use statistical methods to search for a password.
Versions of Word 97 and 2000 have better algorithm but still there are
good chances of success when short password is used. Most of the software
tools perform brute force search which gives you nothing when
strong passwords are used.
Our service implements Express Recovery technology which ensures that
all, even most complicated passwords are found.
Microsoft did much better job on Word 2007/2010 by implementing AES standard
encryption. Recovering data in this way would be a compuationally hard process.
In this case we utilize our high performance cluster to perform cloud based
MS WORD password types

What our users say
After passwordnow.com has helped me to get my docs back I decided to
write my story here as a sign of my appreciation.
I moved to another country and my Word files are suddenly
The error was: "This document has been password protected with an encryption scheme not available in this region. Word cannot open this document."
I was so freaked out since I cannot complete my thesis in time but luckily
these guys could restore all my stuff back!
