To encrypt and decrypt messages in Laravel, you can use Laravel's built-in encryption and decryption features. Here's how you can encrypt and decrypt a message in Laravel:

  1. Encrypting a message:
1
2
3
4
5
$message = 'Hello, this is a secret message';

$encryptedMessage = encrypt($message);

echo $encryptedMessage;


  1. Decrypting a message:
1
2
3
4
5
$encryptedMessage = 'eyJpdiI6IlJjN3VkYkloU3dGaHJDSjBuVHc5bUE9PSIsInZhbHVlIjoiVDlqa1V6bEdaZHdIRzhLQVZhdXB3Zz09IiwibWFjIjoiODA4MGIyYjQ0ZTc4ZTRjMjUzZmY1MDRhOGI3MWE4MWFmZmUwMmU4N2I4MTVhMjM0NjE3ZjRmNmNhNTkwODhiYiJ9';

$decryptedMessage = decrypt($encryptedMessage);

echo $decryptedMessage;


Make sure to keep your encryption key secure and confidential, as it is used to encrypt and decrypt messages. You can set your encryption key in the .env file:

1
ENCRYPTION_KEY=your-secret-key-here


By following these steps, you can easily encrypt and decrypt messages in Laravel.
