Hi, can you please tell how to recover passphrase for AUR wallet?
I haven't use my wallet for a while and now I can't remember passphrase and can't do any transactions without it.
Looking forward for your help, thank you in advance.

Hi.

I'm afraid that nothing can be done about that. The whole purpose of the passphrase is for you to secure your funds so nobody else can access them. So there is not much that can be done about that. But if you really want to try and pursue it further you can try to google "brute force bitcoin wallet password" and if you're lucky you might find some (definitely not simple) way of cracking the passphrase.

Yes, brute forcing is the only way to get them back. And any information regarding the password use can help in some way to do this.

I've looked into developing a brute forcing program in the past. I'll have a look to see if I can find it somewhere.
