Decryption

Decryption is a process of decoding encrypted data back to its original form using the same encryption method and most likely the same application used for encrypting. Decryption requires a password or a secret key - without it, it may be impossible to decrypt the data, now with encryption algorithms becoming stronger and stronger. Thus it is vitally important to remember a password.
