What does encryption mean and is it safe to use Client Application Status (CAS)?

“Encryption” is a way of covering important information with a code before it is sent over the Internet. That means other machines and people cannot read it illegally. Your computer does this automatically when you send certain personal information to Citizenship and Immigration Canada us. Your encrypted application information will be decoded once it reaches IRCC.
