Editors' Review

The difference isn't night and day between encryption and steganography, but they're different approaches to keeping prying eyes from your text files. Xiao Steganography not only uses passwords to protect your files, but hides them in image files without altering the image. The idea is only the user will know a text file is mixed into the image.

Operating Xiao Steganography is a mere matter of following a wizard. A novice user should find it easy to use this app, but it's robust enough for experienced users. The three-step wizard could use a bit of trimming, though. Selecting the image file is the first step, but the app forces users to immediately click another button to open a file browser. Why not open with the browser at the ready? Nevertheless, the process is quick and simple. The step is repeated to pick the text file to hide. You'll get an error message if the text file is bigger than the image file. The final step includes entering a password and choosing from the five encryption and four hashing algorithms.

Extracting files simply reverses the process and delivers the original text file intact and unaltered. Tiny process quibble aside, this app performs flawlessly. Quick, effective encryption combined with easy steganography in a freeware package makes Xiao Steganography easy to recommend to every privacy minded user.
