This is more of a general understanding instead of a question - A friend of mine told me that VNC is not encrypted. Should I setup a password for it? I've read that it's not worth it. Is it really secure?

    Yes, VPN is not secured any more. Assuming you are on a network with windows server, & in that case, you can try the Extensible Authentication Protocol Transport Level Security/ EAPTLS. Which is used with smart cards. These require a public key infrastructure while this is expensive. Though there are more like, Password Authentication Protocol/ PAP or Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol/CHAP.
