DVDFab Passkey, works as a DVD Decrypter, Blu-ray decrypter, is a simple combination of Passkey for DVD and Passkey for Blu-ray. Compared with registered version, this Passkey Lite has its own limitation on dealing with certain protections on some DVD/Blu-ray movies. In other words, Passkey Lite cannot help you backup movies with certain protections, but, you can still freely watch them. To movies without those certain protections, you can use other software to access unprotected contents with the help of Passkey Lite. Full version costs from $40.

All features

Overview of Passkey for Blu-ray ($60)

DVDFab Passkey for Blu-ray is powerful in decryption. Any copy protections and region code are in no mean any barriers in front of it. With its fast reading process and strong decrypting ability, you can watch your protected Blu-ray in no time.
If you are not content with just watching them, then you can use other compatible software to edit them, such as copy, clone, burning, etc.
And, it's the most easy-to-use software you've ever met in fact. You can finish all the process intuitively, even no need to click or tap when it's running. You will be impressed!

Overview of Passkey for DVD ($40)

DVDFab Passkey for DVD is a great DVD decrypter, which can remove all the DVD protections on the go and let you get rid of region code troubles to help you freely watch any DVD without any limit and without any wait.
Not enough! Besides the "freely enjoy any DVD" feature, it can also work with numerous software to let you access the unprotected DVD content then copy, burn, clone, rip, convert them or do any editing you wish.
Passkey for DVD is really easy to operate. Almost everything is finished automatically, you don't even need to do any clicking. The reading speed is very fast, all decryption work can be done within seconds.

Overview of Passkey Lite (free)

Passkey Lite is a free and a simple two-in-one version of Passkey for DVD and Passkey for Blu-ray, and supports part of the functions they have.
It can still decrypt protected DVD and Blu-ray, but not for all of them. For example, it can't remove AACS V12+, BD+, BDAV, and AVCREC for Blu-ray, so you are not allowed to watch movies with those protections. It doesn't support CPRM for DVD, and PathPlayer is not enabled, so ARccOS, RipGuard, FluxDVD, and CORE X2 can't be removed. As a result, you can't copy those still protected DVDs , but you are able to freely watch them.
What adds punch to Passkey Lite is it can work with all the software that Passkey for DVD and Passkey for Blu-ray works with. You are enabled to use these apps to play/copy/rip the unprotected DVD/Blu-ray discs.

This crap. I try DVDFab PassKey "Lite". It says it's "Lifetime" limited capability. But when I open it a little box says it's for 30 days and 3 discs! Liars! Typical Chinese lies and BS. And then it doesn't work on everything. Stay away from DVDFab ANYTHING! I now use "Xreveal" (look it up) which is free open source and works like AnyDVD. It takes a little more effort but worth it.

I purchased this software so I could rip my DVDs to digital media and store on my home media server. It worked fine on most of my DVDs, but there were some that it would only decrypt part of the media. For example, the Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey all it decrypted was a 3 minute anti-smoking ad. There were others with similar issues. I reported it to the developers, provided the logs and so forth - that was 2 weeks ago, still no fix. I gave up and downloaded AnyDVD and it worked on all the DVDs that DVDFab did not. Maybe they will get it fixed, maybe not.

Van S, I'm not sure what you are doing wrong but I assure you that it is probably operator error. I've used Passkey for at least a dozen years and it has never let me down. Be sure to reboot your computer after installing. Follow their instructions exactly. It works and it works perfectly when you do.

worst piece of crap I have ever tried to use. will not open any discs, comes up with errors and says it cannot open. I have tried to reinstall, and setup but even though I paid them for 2 years service it will not allow me in or even send a new passcode
