Router password decryption

Router Password Decryption can decrypt Cisco enter 7 passwords. Enter 7 passwords are commonly used for terminal and enable login on Cisco routers and switches. You must have the encrypted password string to decrypt the password. The encrypted string is normally taken from a printed Cisco configuration or by downloading the configuration directly from the router or switch.

To decrypt an encrypted password string, enter or paste the encrypted enter 7 password string, and then click Decrypt.
