    Recovering Netscape Navigator encrypted passwords

    I am not aware of any currently existing software to decrypt Netscape Navigator encrypted passwords.

      I’m using Paranotic Password Manager – really very useful. Portable version, click-to-copy passwords, logins and ect. Daily backup data – you allways can restore your data file if you lost it. Recommend!
