There are many ways to protect a file from being opened by anyone and one of the most popular one is by encryption. However an encrypted file allows anyone to copy it away and brute force it from their computer. With a little bit of luck and time, it is possible for the encrypted file to be cracked. The fool proof way is to hide the file itself from being discovered in the first place so there is no chance for the cracker to crack the encrypted file.

Hiding a file also has many techniques and one of it is by hiding the confidential file IN another file by combining them together and leaving only the unimportant file functional. This way no one would ever suspect that the image, mp3 or video file has an embedded important information.

Plain Sight is a free program can be used to hide files within other files using military strength 256 bit AES encryption. It offers double protection against crackers that is using an unlock file generated when hiding the data and a password.
