Do you have documents or pictures that you don’t want anyone else to find? Read on to find out how you can embed your important files inside of other files so that nobody will ever know that they existed, except you of course.

Hiding Data

Head over to the EmbeddedSW website and grab yourself a copy of OpenPuff.

Once it has downloaded, extract and launch it, then hit the hide button.

The first thing you will need to do is enter 3 unique passwords.

Now you can select the file you want to hide.

Finally you will need to add one or more Carriers, these are the files that you want to hide your file inside of.

Then go ahead and click the Hide Data button, you will be prompted for where you would like to save the new file.

Extracting Your Files

Once your files are hidden, you will probably want to get them back at some point, to do this, again launch OpenPuff this time click unhide.

Then put in the passwords you used to hide the file.

Now you will need to specify your Carrier, if you used more than one make sure that you add all of them in the correct order.

Then click the unhide button and select a location to save your hidden file.

Once completed you will be given a report which will tell you the name of the file that was hidden.

That’s all there is to it.
