Sometimes we get lucky when we go in search of a featured freeware program for our newsletters. We find something that almost everyone could use. And when we tested it and found it installed no toolbars or other malware (as of 2/13/2014) we were thrilled. We’re old and it does not take much to thrill us!
We figure, by now, about 50% of you have paid attention to us and have installed a download manager. And if you’ve listened to us, you’ve installed one you can access with a master password and made backups of your password data and/or use a password manager which stores your passwords, encrypted, in the cloud.
So that leaves the other 50% of you – who are never going to install a password manager even if EB twists your arm into a pretzel.
But whether do listen to us or don’t listen to us, our freeware pick this week is something every one of you could use. It not only finds your Windows and Office product keys, it finds license keys for over 700 applications. And it also can ferret out your email passwords too — and we know remember email passwords is a problem for many of you.
It takes a while for reCALL to scan your computer for product keys and passwords, because it digs deep and finds most all of them. You can also run reCALL in a special mode to just recover your email passwords, if that’s what you’re after. And when you’re all done, you can export the data to a file — but remember anyone who finds that file and can read, will have all your passwords and products keys too.
Keep in mind the web site is written in Czechoslovakian or some language I don’t read, speak or write. But check out the image below. You an select English or whatever your language is by clicking the word near the top right of the web site which is a foreign word meaning contact (really). Click it and you’ll see a list of 500 languages (well, not quite that many, but many). Choose your language from that list and you’re off the races — or at least off to being able to read the page.
OK…we know you’ll want to hear what the developer has to say, so we’ll bring him in to address you. Mr. Developer — here’s your big chance…
