In this paper, we propose a new approach which is sophisticated for concealing the data. We are using Audio Steganography to make the confidential data more secure, so that the data cannot be tracked and modified by the intruders. To make the confidential data secure we are using efficient and reliable algorithms. This paper describes how the data is secured form the intruders even though they trace the audio file which contains the confidential data.
