Forgotten your password and stuck trying to recover it? Look no further. It may not always be easy to recover a password and if the protection procedure has been done with care, you will need one of the following methods to recover your password. These lost password recovery methods are useful in recovering any type of password.

  • Brute force attack

The brute force attack is the most popularly used password recovery method that simply means trying all possible character combination in place of the password. Although this method guarantees success, it is very time-consuming. This method might be useful for small password but is very difficult and time-consuming for longer passwords.

  • Dictionary search

This method uses a dictionary. To crack the password, you would need to try all the words in the dictionary. For this password recovery method, a Good Dictionary, also called a word-list is ideal. This type of dictionary also includes non-standard words like ‘qwerty’ which are often used as passwords. This method is fast and efficient. The only condition is that the password must exist in the dictionary. Although the probability of the password existing in the dictionary is not very high, this method must be tried before proceeding to the harder methods because the dictionary search does not take much time.

  • Smart force attack

This is a more advanced form of the brute force attack. This method assumes that the combination of characters is not meaningless and does not contain digits. This method is effective in cracking up to 11 character passwords, however is useless in machine-generated “random” passwords.

  • Password variation

The user could have typed an incorrect password and need to crack it. The mistake could be an error or typing the password with Caps lock on. To use this method, the user must remember the approximate appearance of the password but cannot recall it. In such a case, every possible variant of the approximation needs to be tried.

  • Automatic mode

This method is actually a combination of all of these methods. It uses the Dictionary Attack, Smart Force Attack and the Brute Force with different settings. If you do not want to go into the details of all the methods, the automatic mode does that for you.

From all the above mentioned methods, the Brute Force is the only method that guarantees success. None of them however, can be said to be the best. If you know anything about the password, like the beginning or the end, do enter that. The method you should use, therefore, depends on your requirements and all methods are useful.

If you are a 21st century kid, you definitely know what a USB hub is, and if you are not, you must still know how to use one because the possible uses and benefits of this piece of technology are too many for you to not need one yourself. USB hubs are very popular desk accessories particularly for those who make good use of USB enabled devices.  Here are 5 best uses of USB hubs.

  1. Use it with a laptop that has only a few USB ports

There are very few laptops which have quite a few USB ports and many do not have more than two or three. USB hubs are needed in such a case. If you want to plug in a keyboard, a mouse, a printer and an external hard-drive all at the same time, you cannot manage it unless you have a USB hub.

  1. Use it if your laptop’s USB ports are too close to use all at once

Your laptop might have many ports but if they are to close together, it would not be possible to use them together. USB hubs can be used here so that you can overcome this problem.

  1. Use it as a charging station

Another one of the best uses of a USB hub is as a charging station. If you have a powered USB hub, charge several devices without having to plug in to your laptop. Do so after plugging in to your laptop if the USB hub is not powered. There are many devices that can be charged via USB.

  1. Use a hub if you need to move data

If you stuck trying to move data between several different devices, the USB hub is your solution! Connect the different devices to your laptop using a USB hub and do the shifting all at once.

  1. Use it to save your laptop’s energy

A powered USB hub generates its own power and acts as a second source of energy for the devices. Attaching many devises directly to your laptop eats up a lot of its energy and might lower its lifespan and using a powered hub will save your laptop’s energy greatly.

USB hubs can thus be seen to have many uses and are still necessary in many situations. Their benefits and uses cannot be ignored and these uses ensure that USB hubs are still used today.
