Although the ZXX typeface by Sang Mun isn't really designed to maintain your messages confidential, it is a symbol on the "growing problem of privacy on the Internet and personal data protection from intelligence agencies and programs, such as the much-talked-of PRISM, as well as from groups of intruders and loner hackers."

The typeface was developed by a designer Sang Mun for his final project at the Rhode Island School of Design. The project focuses on the growing problem of privacy on the Internet and personal data protection from intelligence agencies and programs, such as the much-talked-of PRISM, as well as from groups of intruders and loner hackers. The font works after CAPTCHA method, creating distorted letters, so it is very difficult to read it without human analytical thinking.
