Keep Prying Eyes Out of Your Personal Buisness



A former NSA contractor has come up with four new fonts called ZXX that can fool character recognition systems used by Google and other Web companies. You too can use these fonts to keep your communications safe. Watch to find out more about ZXX and how you can use it to keep your data private.

While it's an interesting way to try some things, it's only value(?) would be to create a text then convert the text to a jpg and send it so a standard scanner would have a tough time interpreting it.
A scanner (OCR) would only have to have the font software installed to be able to read it.
This may be ok for basic nosiness some ad companies who copy your email to add you to their lists but overall does virtually nothing to hard core protection. Text is still ones and zeros no matter what the text looks like.

This site is much more relavant and important:

Go there and READ IT!

Get away from Microsoft, Apple, Google (Chrome) and learn Linux or its offshoots. The many new user interfaces of Linux are not that different from Windows or whatever the OS du jour Apple currently uses. And it is MUCH safer!
