Using Vanish

Vanish will see anything displayed on your browser that's highlighted in an editable text window. One is provided for convenience on the Vanish download page (see Figure 2).

Highlight it, right-click the highlighted text, go to Vanish > Create Vanish Message as you see in Figure 2.

Figure 4 shows a message in cryptotext “encapsulated” form after Vanish processing.

Figures 5 and 6 shows a message in cryptotext during decapsulation and as plain decapsulated text after Vanish processing.
