Use Privacy Masking to help protect user privacy by masking or anonymizing user information. You can select which fields to mask. Masked fields show anonymous data. You can unmask and see the original data by entering the Data Mask Key that you specify in the administrator profile.
Data fields that can be masked include the source IP address, destination IP address, source name, destination name, user name, email address, message, and source MAC address. The selected fields are masked in all modules that display those fields.
When Privacy Masking is enabled in an administrator profile, accounts using that profile have a See Original Data button in the banner.
To see the original, unmasked data:
- In any list showing masked data, click See Original Data and select Screen Picker or Manual Input.
- If you select Screen Picker, click a masked field, for example, 126.96.36.199.
The Unmask Protected Data dialog box displays with the field you clicked already entered.
If you select Manual Input, enter the masked text, for example, 188.8.131.52.
- Enter the Data Mask Key that was set up in the administrator profile and click OK.
