Technical Definition – The process of converting information or data into a code, especially to prevent unauthorized access.

Layman’s Definition – It is a process of bundling an information in such a way that only authorized users, persons, etc., can access it. The purpose of encryption is to hide important information by converting plain text into a non-readable format where the receiver would only be able to revert back to plaintext with a deciphering/decrypting key.

We use encryption to maintain passwords and send sensitive through the internet.
