The objective of this project is to obscure/hide and encrypt textual chat data into a well-known image format Graphics Interchange Format commonly known as GIF using the concept of steganography. Steganography can be achieved by applying the LSB or Least Significant Bit Algorithm. The textual data that is used for communication in social media messenger services can be encrypted by symmetric encryption algorithm which is known as Advanced encryption standard. GIF's are currently used massively
