Free File Camouflage
Hide files inside JPEG images

Free File Camouflage is a free portable tool designed to hide a file inside a target image.

The interface has no particular surprises. Select some confidential file, a target image, enter the name of the image you'd like to create, an optional password, and you're done. Free File Camouflage opens the source file, encrypts it using AES, and tags the data onto the end of the destination image.

The end result is what looks like a regular JPEG image, and if anyone opens it with a graphics viewer they'll see the picture it contains, exactly as before.

But, if someone opens it with Free File Camouflage, they can use the De-Camouflage function to extract, decrypt and save a copy of the hidden file.

Verdict:

While most similar tools hide files within image data, Free File Camouflage takes a far more basic route, and just adds the encrypted file to the end of the JPEG.

This doesn't affect viewing - open the picture and it'll look entirely normal - but if an expert is looking closely at the files and their structure, there's more chance they'll realise something odd is going on.

Free File Camouflage should defeat non-technical users, though, and its simple approach does have another plus: there's no restriction on the size of file you can embed in an individual picture.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.111

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.111 

• It’s now easier to start group voice and video calls. Just tap the call button in groups or select "New group call" when starting a new call in the calls tab. Group calls support up to 4 participants.
