Password revealed in screen recording

Aug 13, 2018


Has anybody else experienced this? I was recording my screen to create a training video on logging into a system, and this included typing in a password. 

When I uploaded the recording into Storyline and inserted as a step-by-step slide, the default step-by-step instructions that were created revealed my password as a slide title/instruction. 

I understand the screen recording records whatever is input, so recorded the characters I typed when I typed my password, but this seems a potentially dangerous process - is there not a way the screen recording can identify when something is being typed into a secure field? Or am I missing something obvious here?

It isn't an issue in that I noticed it straight away and edited the slide title and text in the step-by-step instruction but it could potentially be an issue.
