How To: Masks Your Private Data Before You Take Screenshots

How To: Masks Your Private Data Before You Take Screenshots 1

The better way to represent any form of content is now screenshots. In every instances it is better to give a screenshot than explaining how something looks. While taking screenshots, one must be careful about hiding sensitive data which might risk their privacy. To cope up with this risk of privacy, there is a Chrome extension named DataMask that hides all your sensitive data.
All the images in your screenshots are blurred by DataMask. In case of data present in form of text, it is replaced with random strings wherever a private piece of information is present. By this, people without any compromise, can take screenshots confidently without worrying about personal sensitive data.

An expert’s proficiency is not required to use DataMask. First, you need to install the extension from the Chrome Web Store. Whenever you need to take a screenshot which has sensitive data, click on DataMask’s icon. The DataMask icon is seen in the top right corner of your Google Chrome or any chromium based web browser.
Click on that extension’s icon, all your sensitive information in that current screen will be hidden and you can proceed with extension.
The missing feature in the extension is the toggle to roll back to the original version. It is found that simply hitting the refresh button, it brings everything back to normal. It was more convenient to have a toggle to switch between censored ans uncensored versions. It is hoped that this feature is added in a future update.
