Encoded Words








Encoded words uses a steganographic technique called visual cryptography to hide words. The absurd sentences that were revealed are made from a list of words that are monitored by the Department of Homeland Security to track suspicious activity online for signs of terrorist or other threats to the US.Without both images, one online and the other print, the images are meaningless, but once overlaid, they allow you to share secret messages, including ones containing these ‘monitored’ words without being tracked.
