We can easily observe that in the current era of communication, Computers, mobile phones, and the Internet are widely used mediums. In such an environment, information security is an important issue. The most common techniques used for information security are Cryptography and Steganography. Many research works have been done on image Steganography. These images have different kinds of formats like BMP, GIF, and PNG. Several compression methods are available which applied to the images having

JPEG compression steganography method is complex to implement even then some algorithms have been developed for it. They provide single-level or two-level information securities. This paper presents a method in which is the combination of Cryptography and Steganography is used over android mobile phones. Here we are performing encryption two times on data to be hidden and then that encrypted data hidden both in text and image. We are using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm to hide text within a text, Discrete Cosine transform (DCT) for image steganography, and Data Encryption Standard (DES) for encryption of text. This paper gives the idea of threelevel information security over the android environment.
