August 25, 2021

Magento provides encryption mechanism for sensitive data saved on adminhtml. Encrypted fields can be used to save sensitive data like API Access Keys.

To use Encrypted fields on Magento:

  • set type=“obscure” on field tag
  • set backend_model “Magento\Config\Model\Config\Backend\Encrypted”

Please note that using type=“password” does not encrypt the value
