Encryption is basically a process of transforming data (referred to as plaintext) using an algorithm (called cipher) to make it unreadable to anyone except for those possessing special knowledge, usually referred to as a key. The encrypted information or the ciphertext is the end result that can be changed to the original form using decryption process (the reverse of encryption). Encryption has its wide use when it comes to transferring data securely. There are some online text encryptors as well that are available for free.
