Protected Storage PassView


Package test results are passing.

This package was approved by moderator doc on 12/22/2015.

Protected Storage PassView is a small utility that reveals the passwords stored on your computer by Internet Explorer, Outlook Express and MSN Explorer. The passwords are revealed by reading the information from the Protected Storage.

Starting from version 1.60, this utility reveals all AutoComplete strings stored in Internet Explorer, not only the AutoComplete password, as in the previous versions.

To install Protected Storage PassView, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install pspv

To upgrade Protected Storage PassView, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
