A few modern instant messengers, such as ICQ version 6 and higher, Yahoo! IM version 7.5 and up, and all versions of Skype, never store password information anywhere. Instead, they perform a one-way transformation of a password, creating a secure hash that is used to authenticate users with IM servers.
Instead of performing lengthy attacks on these passwords, Advanced Instant Messengers Password Recovery offers an ability to back up and restore such passwords, effectively allowing transferring IM accounts and settings from one PC to another without knowing the original password.
