Ophcrack is a popular password cracking tool among Windows users as it lets you recover forgotten passwords for the user accounts on your Windows PC. It has been a really great tool for many users out there who have forgotten their passwords and cannot get access to their account. The app is a boon for such PC users.
On most websites, you would have only learned about the Windows version of Ophcrack. If you happen to have a Mac, you will find that there's no mention of Ophcrack for Mac on the Internet and it is really hard to find the app's Mac version.
Fortunately, the Mac version of Ophcrack does exist but it is not as easy to download as the Windows version because Macs, as you already know, have always had less apps (but useful) apps than Windows PCs.
To get the Ophcrack app to run on your Mac, you will need to issue a couple of commands using the Terminal app on your Mac. What these commands will do is they will fetch the Ophcrack's Mac version and install it on your machine. Unlike Windows where you can just double-click the setup file and the installation wizard opens and you go through it to finish the installation, the Mac version requires you to go through the commands first to then be able to use the utility.
Here's how you can go about getting Ophcrack to run on your Mac machine:
To run the app, you do not need a special tool or anything like that. All you need is an active Internet connection and access to the Terminal app on your Mac and you are good to go. Here's how:
The Ophcrack app should now be installed on your Mac and you can start using it right away. That's all for how to use Ophcrack on Mac. If you unfortunately lost password on Windows 10/8.1/8/7, you can refer to Windows Password Key, the best Windows password recovery tool for help.
