Message Smuggler icon The leading software on the market of its kind, which used to smuggle or hide text message into images

Encrypted communication refers to a secure method of transmitting information, one that ensures that only you and the other person can transmit and decode a message. The most popular forms of encryption are text based and rely on secret keys and complicated algorithms to turn the message to a form that can only be deciphered by the communicating parts.

A less known encryption form, but equally valid, is the method that uses images to insert secret messages. Message Smuggler is one of the best examples in this case. This small security software allows users to hide text in photos, without any visible modification in the original picture.

The installation process is a breeze and the program’s interface is attractive enough to catch your eye. To succesfully communicate a message to someone else means that the other person must have this software installed as well. The usage couldn’t be simpler: open an image, write your message, and then save the new image by adding a password to it.

Of course, for the receiver to decrypt the message, they are required to own the password you originally used to encrypt the message. Make sure that you communicate the password to the communicating parts in a secure manner, since the whole purpose of the application would be endangered if anyone else gets ahold of the secret key.

All in all, Message Smuggler is a recommendable choice when you are holding valuable information that shouldn't be shared with just anyone. Bear in mind that, as any other encryption method, it is not 100% safe.
