I do a lot of screencasting and screen sharing on Zoom, and I also use Alfred's Snippets feature, which displays the expanded text on screen when it's invoked.

 

I'm afraid I will someday soon expose some sensitive data on my screen when I use snippets while sharing. I'd really like the ability to mark certain snippets as "hidden" so they do not display like the example below. I think this would greatly enhance the security of the data we store in Snippets. 

Thanks for considering.

@Ted Curran Further to what Andrew suggested, you can also separate your more private snippets into a collection that you disable before your screen shares, so that you don't accidentally broadcast your details.

 

You can disable a collection by right-clicking on it and unchecking the "Enabled" option.

@marslo Snippets and workflows shouldn't be used for password storage, as they're stored in plain text and may be synced.

 

Use the macOS keychain or a third-party service like 1Password, which are intended for securely storing passwords.
