The values of some fields are concealed. Users are not able to see them. Why?

Table of Contents

For security reasons, encrypted field values are concealed using asterisks (*) for all users, by default.
For example, an encrypted credit card number is shown as 2222 88** **** ****. Only users with the ‘View Encrypted Field’ permission can decrypt values in the Deep Dive View.


Permission to view encrypted values can be given to a profile in the CRM. Users belonging to the profile will be able to view encrypted data.

Follow these steps to provide permission to a profile to view encrypted values:

  1. Click the User Menu on the top right corner of the screen.
  2. Click the Settings button.
    • You will land on the Settings page.
  3. Look for the User Management section and select Profiles under it.
  4. Hover on a profile and click the Edit icon.
  5. Choose an app (Inventory, Sales, etc.) and click the downward arrow on it.
  6. Choose a module and click the downward arrow on it.
  7. Scroll down to the Tools section.
  8. Enable the View encrypted field value checkbox.
  9. Click Save.
