Need Opinion

Hello there , so i recently posted some doubt related to coding (regarding my website) on another forum and this is what i got in reply

It got me thinking “what’s wrong in my website?”
Does it really sucks?
I need your guys opinion here
here’s the website

I would not say “It sucks”, but I would say that is not practical. Because it relies on copy-paste, and more importantly, it relies on OSs keeping the exact same form of the charactors copied. In fact you said it yourself, it does not work on mobile. But, 55% of traffic is on mobile.

How are people supposed to share their hidden text? They cannot message it to eachother (Does not work on mobile). They cannot send it via email (It gets converted). General encryption is a lot more versatile. For example, I can send this plain text to my secret correspondent, and since they know how to decode it, it works.

My Version: YldWellXZGw=
Your Version: Hidden Message

Copy and paste your version into your website, i’ll bet it wot work.

EDIT: Can you decode my text easily?

EDIT2: And although your version is very inconspicuous, all I have to do is run it though here View non-printable unicode characters to find out that it is hiding something.


But i never said it doesnt work on mobile device , it just says use system paste . It works on hell lot of devices , also with app such as whatsapp , ig , snap , etc
For now your doesnt shows any hidden text.
Lets see if mine work over here
My version : This ‌​​​​​‌⁠‌‌‌​​‌‌⁠‌​​​​​⁠‌‌​‌​​‌⁠‌​​​​​⁠‌‌‌​​‌‌⁠‌‌​​​​‌⁠‌‌​‌​​‌⁠‌‌​​‌​​works
Your version : As i said

It works :smiley:
Idk why your does not :thinking::cry:

Sorry, I misread that sentence on your website.

I don’t know why yours works but mine did not, but its these little inconsistency’s that can mess it up.

But yes, it can be fun little tool for people to use to share messages, but codes like the one below work just as well, and are not plagued by system inconsistency’s. If one is looking to hide in plain site, then your tool will certainly work.

The code that will work everywhere, and cannot be decoded easily: YldWellXZGw=

The only other thing with your version, is if someone even suspects that a message is hidden, it will be super easy for them, to uncover its true message.

Try this:

base64_decode("YldWellXZGw=") = base64_decode("bWVzYWdl") = "mesage"

But yes, I agree with what GR9 said. If you want to have a bit of fun with your friends, hidden unicode is a great idea. But if you actually want to “hide” a message, base64 is a good idea. If you want an “encrypted” message, use a private/public key combo or just don’t send a message!


I see :thinking:

I guess it was kind of obvious that was a base64, but other ways, such as a substitution chipher, then a base64 work as well. As long as both parties can encode/decode, it works.
