Hide secret documents inside audio files - and audio CD tracks

DeepSound is a steganography tool which can conceal confidential data within WAV or FLAC files (and encrypt it, too, for good measure), and even audio CD tracks.

The program includes a simple built-in browser which allows you to locate and choose a suitable carrier file.

Next, you're able to add whatever files you'd like to hide within the carrier.

DeepSound can embed that data, and optionally protect it with 256-bit AES encryption, exporting the results as a modified WAV or FLAC file. This will play as normal, so look to everyone else like a regular audio file, but only yourself (or anyone else who knows the secret) will be able to extract the secret documents.

Better still, if you burn the WAV or FLAC files to an audio CD then the program should still be able to retrieve the hidden documents later.

We say "should", because you have to make sure that your disc burning program doesn't process the audio in any way. In Windows Media Player, for example, we had to click "More burn options" and disable "Apply volume levelling across tracks". You'll similarly need to turn off normalisation elsewhere.

But once our preparations were complete, everything else ran very smoothly. We selected a carrier FLAC file, embedded a PDF in it, and exported it as a WAV. This was burned to an audio CD with our reconfigured Windows Media Player. And if we opened that audio CD track in DeepSound later, and entered our password, we were able to see and extract the hidden file.

There are a few small issues and irritations here; the interface is basic and less than intuitive, for instance. But overall DeepSound works well, and, once you understand the basics, is easy to use. Check the documentation page, for instance, to see the very few steps involved in making all this work.

What's new:

New improved User Interface (GUI)
Blue/Dark color theme
Output directory may be the same as the carrier audio file directory

Verdict:

A basic, but easy-to-use and effective steganography tool

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.7

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 2.16.7?

• If you send a single emoji, it's displayed bigger
• Slide your finger up and down to zoom when recording videos in WhatsApp
• When tapping Edit at the top of the Chats tab, you can now to select multiple chats to quickly archive, delete, or mark as read. 
• Chats are now faster to open
