EncDec is a short-form for Encryption & Decryption.
Encryption means converting a plaintext to some undistinguishable form so that others cannnot know the plaintext.
Decryption is the reverse of encryption where the encrypted text is converted back to plaintext.
EncDec uses AES (Rijndael-256) for encryption and decryption. The encrypted data is then base64 encoded so as to enable error-free transmission through emails.
All human-beings in the age group of 12 and 128 are eligible to use EncDec.
