Now-a-days, when the user login in the website for e.g. yahoo.com, gmail.com and filpkart.com they have to enter the username & password. But password is in the form of text & many users create password by combining various personal details so it is possible to forge that password. This paper proposed a new approach for providing secured authentication using visual cryptography & stenography. In the proposed work, first user has to select one cover image (secret image). Then user has to create one secret question & also has to provide the answer of that secret question. The answer of that question is hiding in the cover image (using steganography) which is selected by the user.
