- What is encryption and how is it used to protect my information?
Encryption is a method of scrambling your information to protect its transmission across the Internet. Encryption transforms data into an unreadable form, and decryption reverses that process. Both encryption and decryption require the use of a special code, usually referred to as 'encryption key'. The encryption of data provides a strong degree of protection against tampering while data is moving through the Internet.
