Encapsulation is one of the fundamental principles of object-oriented programming.
• Encapsulation is a process of hiding all the internal details of an object from the outside world • Encapsulation is a protective barrier that prevents the code and data being randomly accessed by other code or by outside the class
• Encapsulation gives us maintainability, flexibility and extensibility to our code.
• Encapsulation makes implementation inaccessible to other parts of the program and protect from whatever actions might be taken outside the function or class.
• Encapsulation provides a way to protect data from accidental corruption
• Encapsulation hides information within an object
