Hide File in File – For Everyone Who is Paranoid over Private Data Security

Say, you have important data, which you would like to store on your computer with no one else being able to access it even after the thorough investigation of the files. There are numerous ways and approaches to achieve the goal. Today, we will present one more method, fast, easy, and reliable.

You will simply hide your secret file or files inside another file. For example, compress the dangerous for you pictures in zip archive, and hide inside another picture or music mp3 file. The resulting file will look standard and will not offer any clues, it is “loaded” with something else.

Perform the task in few simple steps:

Step 1: Click on "File" button to select the file you want to hide or Drag the file onto the textbox beside it. Compress the files before the process is recommended e.g. zip, rar, or 7z.

Step 2: Click on "Picture or mp3" button to select the file you want to hide into or Drag the file onto the textbox beside it. Recommended image files formats: jpg, png, or bmp.

Step 3: Click on "Output" button to select the output path and file name or Drag the file onto the textbox to overwrite it. Recommended image files formats: jpg, png, or bmp.

Step 4: If "Show cmd Window" checked, the cmd window will show while processing.

Step 5:  Click on "Execute" to Begin the process.

For example, you decided to hide a song in mp3 format in the picture in jpg format. When you received your final output, performing the operations above, you will be able to switch easily between hidden audio in the picture (with extension jpg, clicking the file will just cause the picture opening) and playing your audio clip, when you just rename the output file in the mp3 format.
