ThunderbirdPassDecryptor, A Free Tool to Recover Mail Account Passwords by Thunderbird

Written By Sam on 7 October 2010

If you are a Mozilla Thunderbird user and haven’t heard of the ThunderbirdPassDecryptor yet, it’s time you do. It is the free tool to help recover your Thunderbird mail account passwords.

How it’s done: Thunderbird is a free, open-source, cross-platform application for managing email and news feeds. Like other e-mail clients, it also stores the mail account passwords on the local system for subsequent logins so that user don’t have to type the password everytime. In fact, Thunderbird uses the same mechanism as Firefox to store its e-mail account passwords securely in a file called ‘signons.sqlite’ at its profile location. It uses its own private mechanism with encryption algorithm to store the account details securely in the account database file. If you wish to retrieve any of the above, ThunderbirdPassDecryptor can come in handy, helping you ‘instantly recover’ such stored mail account passwords and also get complete account access details.

ThunderbirdPassDecryptor Features

  • Ability to decrypt and recover stored encrypted mail account passwords from ‘Thunderbird Password Store’
  • Support for recovery of passwords from local as well as remote system
  • Ability to recover passwords from ‘Thunderbird Password Store’ even when it is protected with master password
  • ‘Show Password’ feature to reveal passwords not shown by default
  • ‘Sort feature’ to arrange the displayed password list by username, password or mail server
  • Ability to save the recovered Thunderbird mail account password list to HTML file for future use.

In its latest version of the program, the developer is understood to have provided support for the portable version of Thunderbird by allowing the user to manually specify install location of Thunderbird.
