Definition of Quantum encryption

End-to-end encryption for websites is made possible by quantum encryption, a secure communication technique.

This technique creates a unique encryption key for each communication session using quantum algorithms, or mathematical laws, making it impossible for anyone who does not have the same key to decrypt the discussion or access the data.

Quantum encryption adds an extra layer of security when accessing sensitive information like banking or medical records by encrypting the connection between a user's browser and an online resource.

Additionally, it aids in keeping communications safe and secure by preventing intruders from intercepting and altering them.
