Do you guys think that this is a good way to encrypt and decrypt?
Can it be hacked easily?

don't ever decrypt. Just use a hash so all you do is encrypt. Very secure, because you don't know how to decrypt!

what about apps like whatsapp which need to decrypt their messages?
do you know a way to make a hashing function in python? @Coder100

apps like whatsapp use encrypted messages but they need to decode it every time to show the messages a user has sent before, how do they do it there? @Coder100

All decodable encryptions gets hacked. Hashes don't.
The best bet is add two more constants:

  1. to alternate the 4 expressions
  2. to encode the thing x times, encoding it 1000 times will be significantly harder to crack

so add a loop so the expressions go more than once? @AlexDaCoder

also do you know how hashes work? @AlexDaCoder

@VulcanWM yes, hashes are one way and usually involve bitwise operations (bit shifting, like <<< and >>> in js, idk about python) to make it one-way

@VulcanWM when im doing sha-256 hashing, my friend always does it 1000 times
