How to Hack WinRAR File Password

There are countless ways to hack WinRAR password, but by the end of implementing these four amazing methods, you are on your way to becoming WinRAR password hacker.

Method 1. Hack WinRAR Password with Frequently-used Ones

If you want to hack WinRAR password, you will have to think like a hacker. What I mean by thinking like a hacker is that you will have to start following their basic practices. As you already know that 99% of the people set passwords that are meaningful to them (For example, number of their car, name of their pet, Social Security Number, etc.) otherwise, it would be quite difficult for them to remember, DO YOU AGREE? So, as a starte, a hacker would find the information about the person who set the password so that he/she can guess it. Why can't we do the same? Who knows an individual better than himself/herself. Many people set some common and easy passwords like qwerty, 12345, name786, etc.

So, before trying anything else, we can try to guess our passwords and try most commonly used passwords, it's worth a shot.

Step 1: Open RAR File.

Step 2: Extract the files/data in the RAR file to your desired location.

Step 3: A new dialog box will open and will ask you to enter the password before the extraction process can take place. Enter your guesses, who knows if your guess is right.

If you are lucky enough to guess the password, the extraction process will start right away and you will get your uncompressed files.

Step 4: Wait for the website for the decompressing operation to be done in order to remove the password from your RAR file. Once it is done, it will provide you a new download link with the data that you wanted to unlock.

For me, the online unlocking service is not recommended because there is a high chance of data leakage.
