Clotho 2.4

A user-friendly and powerful tool that helps you hide any file into songs, pictures, or executable items (e.g. MP3, WAV, JPEG, PNG, EXE, MSI), while offering support for obfuscation options and password-protected files
Clotho is a lightweight software application built specifically for helping you hide your sensitive data in audio, image, or executable files. The newly encrypted item looks like a normal file, so other users cannot distinguish the files that embed the secret information.

It boasts a clean and intuitive layout that allows you to carry out most operations with minimum effort.

The program gives you the possibility to specify the file where the sensitive data should be hidden, namely MP3, WAV, MID, OGG, JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, MP4, FLV, AVI, ZIP, RAR, EXE, MSI, DLL, or other file format.

What’s more, you can select the file or folder that you want to hide, pick the target location, encrypt data by setting up passwords, as well as compress the item.

Other notable characteristics worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to carry out obfuscation operations for scrambling the sensitive information, so it cannot be deciphered, as well as restructure data in order to extract it with WinRAR.

Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to work with this tool, even rookies can master the process on the breeze. During our testing we have noticed that Clotho carries out a task quickly and without errors. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.

All things considered, Clotho provides a handy set of parameters for helping you hide secret data in other files. Thanks to its intuitive layout, it is suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
