Jfc, I didn't mean it's literal actual encryption. In terms of the difficulty of someone unintentionally finding the note it's LIKE encryption because they'd need the specific key to find it.

That's not what encryption does. You're referring to security through obscurity. Encryption makes it so even if the note is found, it is unreadable by anyone other than those with the key to decrypt.

Writing in a made up language is closer to encryption than your example.
