Database schema

Encrypted values are stored as plain text so in most cases takes up more spaces then unencrypted one. Recommendation is to alter table column to TEXT type. If you want use VARCHAR or CHAR column type still you need to check if encrypted value fit.


Do not worry if you have current data in your database not encrypted and added column to $encryptable - they will return as is.
On save values will be encrypted and everything will work fine.


Via Composer command line:

$ composer require payamjafari/laravel-db-encrypter


  1. Use the betterapp\LaravelDbEncrypter\Traits\EncryptableDbAttribute trait in any Eloquent model that you wish to use encryption
  2. Define a protected $encryptable array containing a list of the encrypted attributes.

For example:

use Jenssegers\Mongodb\Eloquent\Model;
use betterapp\LaravelDbEncrypter\Traits\EncryptableDbAttribute;

class Client extends Model {
    use EncryptableDbAttribute;

    /** @var array The attributes that should be encrypted/decrypted */
    protected array $encryptable = [
  1. You can use Laravel's original $casts to cast decrypted values
