Method 1: Find and recover:
1. First you need to go to Filezilla and click on the top left corner and then tap on the export option.
2. Now after tapping, you will see a popup window on the screen showing the categories you want to export. There select the option “export entries from site administrator” and then click OK.
3. Now you need to export the xml file to your personal computer. Export the downloaded file to any folder on your computer or portable file explorer.
Method 2 – Browse the XML file:
1. You need to go to the downloaded xml file and then right click on it to open it. You can open the file simply using notepad or browser. Otherwise, you can double-tap the file to open it directly. As of now we are opening it in Notepad++.
2. Now after opening the file, you will be able to see the login details of the site. Instead of manual search, just press CTRL + F.
3. In the search dialog box, type the name of the site, for example, My site where the password is located, and click Find Next. The automatic search will take you to the section that contains the name of the site.
4. Now you have to start looking for the password and copy it. For example, there will be a data string representing the word “USER” and “PASS”. You just have to copy that password that is mentioned between these words.
Wait, don’t go anywhere, the job doesn’t end here. The next step is to decrypt via online tools, as this password is encrypted with a base 64 code. You just need to copy the encrypted password.
Method 3: Filezilla Password Decryption
Step 1: Now after copying the password, go to the search engine and type “Decode base 64”. Click on any of the first URLs that appear in the search results.
Step 2: Once the URL opens, you just need to paste the password and then tap on the deode option. Then you will be able to see the original FTP password.
