Overview
DocSecrets hides and encrypts sensitive information such as passwords, patent ideas or other secrets. 

Using the DocSecrets sidebar you can insert secrets into your document, displayed as a highlighted text-areas. Given the correct passphrase the sidebar shows all secrets in your document. 

You may edit, reveal or remove your secrets. DocSecrets automatically tracks your cursor position and highlights the current secret. 

DocSecrets supports document sharing and enables you to censor parts of your document. If you reveal your passphrase to your collaborators they to can view and edit secrets.  

All encryption is performed in your browser using your passphrase and AES encryption. This passphrase is never sent to or stored on Google servers. This means that only you can decrypt your secrets so pick a passphrase that you can remember. If you forget it all secrets will be lost. 

All information that you enter using DocSecrets is encrypted and stored in your document or as document properties i.e. under your Google account.

It is not secret anymore. The docs use version history which track and save since the creation of file. You can rollback and see what you write earlier before applying docs secret password. You can go to menu File -> version history -> see version history. When you choose older version from right side bar, it will reveal all secret. Suggestion: I think it would be wise if it allow to decrypt the copy of file. As version history allow to make copy of file (assume latest change picked ), it won't able to track the old version which make easier to hide the secret. Unfortunately, this app won't recognize the copy of file and couldn't decrypt. I expect this issue can be resolved in future. About app: Good and can be awesome after issue.

This add-on is pretty cool overall, works fine and flows smoothly. What would be cool was if there was a feature where could see which passphrases were last used at what times. Also, if viewing/changing the censored information was much easier and smoother that would nice as well.

This was not a great add-on. If you lose your password, you're screwed. But what I disliked most was that it didn't keep my formatting when I hid it. It changed the font and size so that when you reveal it, it's way different. Very nice idea but terrible construction of the add-on.

It's a P.O.S. When others highlight the hidden "secret" text, it appears lightly and can be clearly seen. What a dog!

No password reset or security question. Be very aware of that. If you forget it, or there is any kind of bug, say goodbye to whatever you were trying to protect. In my case, all my account information and other passwords.
