I have several password protected word docs that I have forgotten the password for. Is there a way to recover them? I am using Word 2011.

  • would would be the purpose of a password if it can be recovered?

    While I agree with Buscar, you should google recover word document password and/or recover word document password mac. There is more than one way to break that password.

There is good software for this (not free though): http://elcomsoft.com/aopr.html You can also google for some online services in addition to what Tyson said.


Similar to Ranklord's answer, iSeePassword claims to be able to unlock these files and/or recover the password.
Beware that it is a commercial product, but it does have a "Free Trial".
