JotForm used the term "mask" to mean the formatting of data typed in a field. What's the term you use for hiding or covering up that data with asterisks so its not visible to prying eyes (e.g., a registration/access code, or a credit card number)?

I guess it depends on what JotForm defines as "Collecting Sensitive Information" (as defined in the Terms & Conditions). I'm not collecting SS numbers or credit card info. But, I'm collecting phone numbers, email addresses and street addresses. I'm also planning to implement an access code work-around for membership passwords (which violate the Terms & Conditions), as suggested by your staff. And, I don't want them to be visible in the clear when entered in the "Access Code" field.

This is commonly referred to as obfuscation. You can achieve this with an input field using CSS. Below is a complete guide that covers this topic in great detail.
