 They are likely to be **fingerprinted**.
 
-Fingerprinting is the process of slightly modifying a file in order to encode information into it, without the overall function of the file looking any different at sight glance. It is the process of [steganographically][1] inserting a uniquely-identifying but impossible-to-detect piece of information into the file.
+Fingerprinting is the process of slightly modifying a file in order to encode information into it, without making the file substantially different; in fact, it is meant to be undetectably different from the true original file. It is the process of [steganographically][1] inserting a uniquely-identifying but very-hard-to-detect piece of information into the file.
 
-Then, should that file be published in a context where the source didn't intend that file to be published, that source can then recover this fingerprint out of the file, and know without doubt which entity caused the leak.

-[Steganography][1] has its uses and is a legitimate means of private, covert communication. However, tracking people without telling them is not something the trackee would desire. This program attempts to give them the option to mitigate such tracking.

 Purpose
 -------
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
