Alkemi is very simple to use. Just type or paste your info into the Original Text screen, click on the Set Key button, type or input a key. You’ll see this step by step just below, and then click the right-pointing arrow. Alkemi will take your text, and, using your key, will output encrypted text in a special format, which is also just text. And being just plain text, it can be sent anywhere, text can be sent.
Step 1: Original Text
Step 2: The Key
Step 3: Click The Right Pointing Arrow
After You Alkemize, What Then?
So with Alkemi you can use just about any text-based communication application for private communications.
ALSO, when you DE-ALKEMIZED data, going the other way using the left-pointing arrow, the data is also automatically copied to your clipboard so you can immediately use it in other programs.
Again, this is just text. Weird text, perhaps, but just text. Plain old text, which you can email anywhere, text anywhere, Messenger anywhere.
Because it doesn’t look like anything of interest, email providers who seem to care about how to monetize your data will not be able to pry into what you write. Note the Hexascii, that is, Alkemized, data is much longer than the original data. Over 2 times as long.
To get back the original message, just paste the Alkemized message you received into the Alkemized Text box, add the key you and your friend share and click the left-pointing arrow and voilà! You get the original message back!
It's that simple.
More or less.
