Abstract

The emergence of social media platforms and the increase of users leads to a rise in a huge amount of shared information. Some applications may opportunistically sense and store the users' data, including personal information, which raises concerns about privacy and security. In response, we developed an application called Slinker, which employs double encryption to protect users' messages as they are transmitted through the network. The application allows end-users to set their own encryption key and settings and send it through social media platforms, which ensures double encryption from the end user and the providers. The GUI was designed using NetBeans and involved modifying and combining two encryption algorithms to achieve a double-encrypted code. The application was deeply tested using random keys and effectively encrypts and decrypts the transmitted data.
