In the world today, privacy and security of data are requirements so difficult to meet by developers and service providers);( the privacy of users and their data are threatened more and more by government agencies looking to collect as much information as possible for various reasons including security, private companies looking to cash in on the various social connections that people have developed their social graph. A review of the existing works on still image steganography and particularly the method of least significant bit hiding was done. Algorithms for the encoding and retrieval of a message into a bitmap file were designed and an application showcasing the use of steganography coupled with cryptography was developed using Microsoft Visual C)++(. This work therefore, designed and implemented a model for information privacy. The study indicated that steganography combined with cryptography provides both security and privacy for encrypting a message.
