Encryption is a method used to enhance the security and privacy of the data or information that is sensitive to be accessed by any random person.
Encryption is the process that converts the actual data and information into an unreadable and coded format, which is protected by an encryption key set by the authorized user only.
The data can be decrypted when the authorized user correctly enters the key. There are different categories of encryption like file encryption:
- Full disk encryption
- Device encryption
- VPN encryption
