React | Encryption and Decryption Data/Text using CryptoJs

To encrypt and decrypt data, simply use encrypt() and decrypt() function from an instance of crypto-js.

Node.js (Install)
1.      Node.js
2.      npm (Node.js package manager)
3.      npm install crypto-js

npm install crypto-js

Usage -

Step 1 - Import

var CryptoJS = require("crypto-js");

Step 2 - Encrypt

  // Encrypt
  var ciphertext = CryptoJS.AES.encrypt(JSON.stringify(data), 'my-secret-key@123').toString();

Step 3 -Decrypt

  // Decrypt
  var bytes = CryptoJS.AES.decrypt(ciphertext'my-secret-key@123');
  var decryptedData = JSON.parse(bytes.toString(CryptoJS.enc.Utf8));

As an Example,

 import React from 'react';
import './App.css';
//Including all libraries, for access to extra methods.
var CryptoJS = require("crypto-js");

function App() {
  var data = [{ id: 1name: 'Anil' }, { id: 2name: 'Sunil' }]

  // Encrypt
  var ciphertext = CryptoJS.AES.encrypt(JSON.stringify(data), 'my-secret-key@123').toString();
  //log encrypted data
  console.log('Encrypt Data -')

  // Decrypt
  var bytes = CryptoJS.AES.decrypt(ciphertext'my-secret-key@123');
  var decryptedData = JSON.parse(bytes.toString(CryptoJS.enc.Utf8));

  //log decrypted Data
  console.log('decrypted Data -')

  return (
    <div className="App">
      <header className="App-header">
        <div>Encrypt Data -{ciphertext}</div>
          { (object) {
export default App;
