Encoding to used to change one format of data to another, for example, changing a image which is a binary file to base64. Usually used when we want to pass data over a network.

Encryption is used to secure data only to be read by authenticated/authorized users. This helps maintain data integrity between 2 parties. For example, the communication between sites which is served over https. It uses asymmetric encryption and avoids man-in-the-middle attack.
