SSN/Passport in ID as Hidden Field

ID hidden fields

  • On an ID the SSN/passport # should be a hidden field.

Feature function

  • What will this feature do differently?
    Instead of it being a normal text field, SSN will be a hidden field
  • What benefits will this feature bring?
    Before it was an annoyance but now it is a security issue due to the way master password reprompt was implemented. You can view an identity on the browser extension without a reprompt unless it is a hidden field. When turning on master password reprompt you assume it has secured your sensitive information (which SSN would clearly fall under).


Consider when inputting Credit Card details both the card number and security code default to hidden. I would like to propose that when inputting a new Identity record that also the SSN, License and Passport fields default to hidden.

What do you think?

Thanks for your consideration.
