coview

Field Masking

If your website has content which should not be copied to any screen cast or screenshot, you can give them the coview specific HTML attribute data-coview-private-content.

Every child element then gets their text content replaced with Xx characters.

During a screen sharing session or screen recording, coview also notes if any private content attribute to an existing or any new element is being added and will mask the content before sending it, thereby making sure that the data does not leave the customer's browser.

Example

The inner <div> element is annotated with this property:

<div>
  <div data-coview-private-content>
    <span>This text will be masked</span>
    <input type="text" value="Some secret value"/>
  </div>
  <span>This text will stay normal</span>
</div>

this will result in the transformation to:

<div>
  <div data-coview-private-content>
    <span>Xxxx xxxx xxxx xx xxxxxx</span>
    <input type="text" value="Xxxx xxxxxx xxxxx"/>
  </div>
  <span>This text will stay normal</span>
</div>

before the page gets sent to the server.

Implications

This privacy-preserving technique can help you to make sure that confidential contents of your users stay private and are not exposed to support personal or developers.
