2. Choose an attack type and set relevant password parameters.

Brute-force is a default password recovery attack type in our software. This is quite helpful when you have a basic idea of what characters your password consists of. The range has many different options to choose from. If you know that your password consists of all small Latin letters, then you can select just that option and untick the other characters. This will significantly improve the decryption time as the software only has to scan limited characters.

The more appropriate the settings are, the faster zip password would be found. You can also see Dictionary and Mask Password Recovery Attack Settings to learn more.
