    This is fun (and really pretty) - I think the risk of doing this stuff online is that it's super easy to inspect HTTP traffic and grab the 'secret' stuff - Snapchat etc make it a little trickier because they're native apps. Cool though!

      Yeah we're really aware of this and trying to think of a clever way to get around it, but I don't think logically there is one...

        Send it as encoded Brainfuck, use Brainfuck.js to convert it to canvas on load and then destroy afterwards. But I guess you could still just take a screenshot or pause script execution?

          Yeah we were thinking something along these lines. Screenshotting is the big one to target. To make it more difficult we thought something like if another key is pressed it kills the viewing mode or if the window is out of focus. The JS won't fire fast enough on windows though and someone will always find a way around. I suppose just making it harder for the normal user is the priority atm.
