You mean encryption? The easiest one is to shift every character one letter over.

Shifting a letter over is called a Cesarean Cipher, but is also the easiest in the world to crack. Also - you have to make sure you handle the end of your alphabet correctly (in American English you need to make sure the Z wraps back around to the A). Also - handling upper and lower case, etc. If you are handling extended characters your code can get complex enough that you would just be better off looking at, learning and using the classes in the .NET system.security.crytography namespace.
Since you posted no code I will not respond with code though.
