Selective Masking Visibility

Currently if a field is masked, those users with permission to view the masked text will see a row of ••••••• and an ‘eye’ icon which they can click to unmask and thereby view the previously obscured text.

Please could we have a Design option so that for only those users with permission such masked fields load unmasked without the ‘eye’ icon?

Users without permission to view the field should of course not be able to unmask it.


Viewable groups can be determined in Masked Text field setting. Please give it a try.

In your example only SYSAdmin can click on the eye icon to unmask the field. What I am suggesting is there should be an option for the following: users other than SYSAdmin should see the masked field (as they currently do), but SYSAdmin should see the field unmasked automatically - without needing to click the eye icon.
