Discussion on: I've made a react component that hides sensitive information in your app.

It's not a good idea to obfuscate sensitive information with CSS, aside from the obvious point that the data is still there and one only has to deactivate CSS in order to deactivate the blur filter, this kind of blur is not actually safe to hide information, just look at the preview image in your article's header.

Your'e right about that one, the library isn't focused around security at all.

The idea is to enable a quick safe preview for customers/client at a presention or a meeting without revealing sensitive information.
