Q. Who are you?

OnlineHashCrack.com provides Professional Services for:
- Password strength testing: measure the effectiveness of a password in protecting sensitive data. This process ensures robust security by analyzing password complexity and unpredictability.
- Password recovery: identify a lost, destroyed, or otherwise inaccessible password, allowing for the successful decryption of key files.

We offer experienced password recovery for all types of computer systems. Within hours or days, we can restore missing passwords or decrypt files completely.

These services contribute to a more secure digital environment by encouraging stronger password practices and ensuring that access to critical data is maintained securely. They address two critical aspects of cybersecurity:
- NIST Protect, ensuring strong passwords helps protect data from unauthorized access.
- NIST Recover, ensuring continuity of access and operation, even when passwords are lost or compromised.

It is crucial that any data or hashes provided are legally obtained (pentesting, audit, strength checks, forensics, etc.).
Our service is contingent on legal and ethical usage, and we reserve the right to terminate services if we suspect unauthorized data ownership.

Q. What does "Not found" and "In progress" mean?

Three states are possible:
Status Description
"Found" We have successfully recovered the password, indicating that its strength is insufficient from a security perspective.
"Not found" We cannot recover it with the information we have and/or you gave us. The password seems to be complex. You can choose another attack (wordlist or bruteforce) to go further and try more candidates.
"In Progress" We are currently working on the task. At this state nobody on earth knows if the attempt will be successful or not: no need to contact us, just wait you'll receive an email if recovered.

It's the hexadecimal encoded representation of your password. Why? Because your password contains non-ascii and/or non-printable character, that's why we surrounded it by "HEX[]".
