Hidden password in batch


In this POST, I will provide you with a segment of a program that you can use to make a password lock on you batch program. DON’T LEAVE YET. You may be thinking: “I’ve seen heaps of these, I’ll just leave now”. Don’t.

My version is different, and, in my opinion, better than those of others. The main, and only difference, is that when you enter your password, instead of letters showing up, asterisks (*) do instead.

There are a few drawbacks with this though. The code is longer than most, the password must be under a certain amount of letters and the password is case insensitive.

It can only contain letters (a-z) and numbers (0-9).

Oh, and also, sorry for spamming instructables recently, I’m having so many ideas. Just bear with my creative flow, until it runs out, that is.

Here it is:

Step 1: Code


@echo off
setlocal enableextensions enabledelayedexpansion
color f0
title hidden password tester

if not exist pass.bat goto create

call pass.bat

echo Correct!

echo Incorrect!

echo Press any key to try again
pause >nul
goto erase

rem Put your punishment here
echo Too many incorrect passwords

echo Create user
echo Password must only contain characters from a-z and 0-9. Password is non case-sensitive. CANNOT EXCEDE 10 CHARACTERS!
set /p pass=Password:
echo set pass=%pass%> “pass.bat”
goto start

1. Change the length of the password
2. Make it case-sensitive (might take a while)
3. …And many others……
