Conceal sensitive information in the Azure Portal with the “Azure Mask” browser extension

If you’re ever doing a livestream you might run into the problem that you’re about to expose sensitive information on your screen, such as UUIDs, emails, passwords, etc. For Azure Portal specifically there’s a browser extension called Azure Mask that does it all for you:

This is a browser extension that will mask GUIDs (such as Subscription IDs), email addresses, keys, and connection strings with a blur. The intention of the extension is to make it easier to do screen recordings without revealing sensitive, personal, account information that may show up on screen. It will only run and apply against Azure portal URLs. It’s available in Chrome and Firefox.

Looks really handy!

⚠️ Unfortunately you can’t install it from the Chrome Web Store due to a “trademark infringement on the name” but you can always grap a .zip from the releases page and load it as an unpacked extension.

👀 If you’re using Visual Studio Code and recording that, you can use Cloak to conceal secrets in ENV files.
