    hi shariq,

    Encrypted Custom Fields are a new field type (released after winter 08) that allows users to store sensitive data in encrypted form and apply a mask when the data is displayed.

    Some important points :

    User profiles who have the “View Encrypted Data” configuration enabled will be able to view the field normally.
    Users who do not have the “View Encrypted Data” profile will see the mask.
    User profiles that have the “Modify All Data” permission will not be able to see the value of encrypted data fields.
