Encrypting text

I am trying to encrypt text before putting it in my data source since its sensitive. I don't think there's are any formula's for doing this but is there any way to accomplish this without them?

This is really something to look at for the datasource level for encrypting the source and protecting with permissions.  Your challenges otherwise would be - if you are encrypting, how would you decrypt?  What encryption strategy would you use and where and how would you store private keys to decrypt?

Datasources like SQL and Dataverse will give you more flexible security on the source that you can use.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
