The role of privacy in the digital world is an essential criterion and confidentiality of pictographic data has added significance to the study of security. A version of visual cryptography for hiding textual data which is based on sixteen segment display is presented. The secret that is in the form of alpha numeric and special characters is converted into segment display and is then encrypted into two random shares. Thedecryption process involves the stacking of these two shares. The process of key distribution becomes much easy and secure with this concept.
