Step 1. You will need your wallet ID.

If you forget your password but know what email created your wallet, you are able to request an email. They will send you all wallets ever created with that mail. The link for that service is:


Step 2. Get a backup of your wallet from server — THIS NO LONGER WORKS.

Instead you need to use web developer tools. When entering a password and the 2fa, enter ANY password.

You will be greeted with with a “Password is wrong” message.

Now head to the web developer tools, open the network tag.

Choose the wallet call, and on the right click on RESPONSE

Mark the data and save it to a file called wallet.aes.json

Now go inside and for every /” in the string, remove the /

With this file, it is possible to bruteforce the password.

In order to do this, you will need to install a bunch of python libraries and be a bit familiar with the command prompt. Its not a GUI.

If you have a wallet.aes.json backup and do not remember the wallet ID, it is possible to import the wallet into a new wallet.

The following link is to import the wallet.aes.json into a new wallet.

Step 3. Extract a hash of the wallet file

You would be able to brute force the password if you have a GPU rig (an NVIDIA or AMD video card) which is able to try thousands of different passwords per second.

Aside from owning a GPU card, you could use a software like hashcat to run the password cracking for you.

Hashcat could be downloaded from

If you are not able to find any password you could use a bunch of different word lists. You can download many different word lists from here:

Make sure you have plenty of space and bandwith. Many of these word lists are 10–30 GB.
