You're welcome! It's tempting to create our own algorithm to encrypt some secrets to show how creative we are and I've been there before. 😉 However security is a vast topic and the rule of thumb would be applying the algorithm created and reviewed by security experts. I believe you'll enjoy reading some most voted questions on Security StackExchange. Have fun! 😄

It's a big NONO if you plan to use this algorithm for password storage. In most cases, password are not meant to be encrypted as there's a possibility to find out the secret via decryption. What you would need is a one-way-function or hashing algorithm. Just head to Security StackExchange to find out more if you're interested. 😉

Thank you for your information, I'm grateful! I create it in the intention of sending a message not very important, basic things. On the Lenum site, I put everything about her, the origin, who developed it, for what purposes it would be.
