There are two main ways of keeping information from others: encryption or hiding.
Encryption is probably the stronger option, but if you can successfully hide something from general view then you shouldn’t need to encrypt it, and then decrypt it when you need to view it. If somebody knows they are looking at an encrypted piece of data, they will set on the task of decrypting it, but if the location of the information is unknown, it is very unlikely that it will be found or retrieved.
Windows provides an easy way to hide files. A file can be hidden which can then only be viewed by changing file system options to view hidden files.
However I will describe one of the easiest ways to hide information effectively. This is, by hiding information in JPG images.
So here are my two files. I want to hide my information file in my_image file.
You can hide as many files as you like in one jpg, but this will obviously increase the size of the jpg and arouse suspicion. So don’t go too big.
After creating your rar archive, open an instance of command promt by going clicking Start then Run, then typing cmd.exe and clicking OK.
Now browse to the location of the files as follows:
My files that I’m going to be working with are stored in the root of C:/
type in the following command: copy /b information.rar + my_image.jpg info_image.jpg
this will copy the two files into a new file called info_image.jpg
You will notice that info_image.jpg is much larger than the original my_image.jpg.
Now to retreive your information, simply use a tool such as WinRAR to extract your image and view your information.
