Tonight I am going to demonstrate an example of hiding data inside a file which is known as steganography. Don’t panic as I am not going to talk about the common command prompt trick. This is something better and exciting. So stay connected.

I got an interesting tool called Invisible Secrets and it forced me to share it with you. This is a worth watching tool capable of performing data hiding and encrypting. Here I will show the data hiding process. Before we start get this tool from here.

Hiding data using Invisible SecretsNow install this application and start it. You will see a screen like that. Now select the Hide Files option provided by it.

Now you’ll be asked to select te files you want to hide inside a file. Select the desired one.

Now to unhide data from this file you’ll select Unhide Files option provided by the tool. select the file which you created and saved just a moment ago. Now you’ll be asked to enter the password and you’ll get all your hidden data.

In the example I hide a mp4 file inside a jpg file and save the output file as jpg. Now it looks and behaves like a normal jpg file but when you open it using this tool you will find that it contains a mp4 file too inside it.

So how cool it would be if I put my divorce related documents inside my wedding photographs. Bad joke! Not actually because I don’t have a wife to get divorced from. You have? Then you can use it. But I’ll urge you to please please check this awesome app and its cool features.
