I have a password protected zip file, but ASTRO does not let me enter a password. What should I do?


Install Dual File Manager. This program lets you unzip password protected files.

  • Is this app an official one? E.g. is it on the Google Play Store? – Mladen B. May 21 at 8:53

Try ArchiDroid and it will do your job... It extracts password-protected RAR, ZIP, TAR, GZIP, BZIP2 and 7zip files... amazingly it is free... Other apps didn't work for me but this one works like a charm :)

  • The link is broken. – Mladen B. May 21 at 8:52

B1 Free Archiver works good for unzipping files and password protected files.

How to uncompress a password protected zip file? It's very simple, just tap two times on your archive and enter the password.

  • From the first answer: "I was helping to translate this soft as a volunteer at CrowdIn translation platform, so I know it well enough to describe it to others." Your answer here is definitely more suited to the question, Kim, so it can stay -- just beware of how it looks when a new user shows up and starts hawking a particular piece of software! – Matthew Read Oct 23 '13 at 20:55
