[unrar] Extract a password protected RAR file

You can extract a RAR file that is password protected on Linux with a utility called unrar

sudo apt install unrar
# provide a password with -p
unrar e -pPASSWORD FILE.rar

To just extract a file that has no password, only pass the e flag

unrar e FILE.rar
