Hidden Messages

Pickled Monsters
Share your thoughts with your friends, just make it hard for them to understand you!
Using this app you can send encrypted messages through Email as well as post them on your Facebook wall, and this way challenge your friends.

Either jump right ahead and look at the screenshots in order to test if you are able to decipher the messages yourself, or read ahead for an explanation of how to do it.

There are several ways in which your messages can be encrypt:

- Mask your text by overlaying it with random letters with different orientations and sizes but all with the same color - red. In order to see the original text you need to look at it through a red-transparent paper which will hide all these distractions. You can find such papers in a craft shop, as one of the lenses in many 3D glasses, or most simply make it by painting with a red marker over a transparent paper.

- Mirrored text is formed by writing in the reverse direction (like when the text is reflected through a mirror… ). Leonardo Da Vinci actually used this in most of his writings in order to prevent other people from reading them.

- The 'Atbash' cipher dates back to the days of the bible and also appeared in many old mystic texts. It is a simple substitution cipher where A is substituted for Z, B for Y and so on, reversing the letters of the alphabet.
Our verdict: Ok
