# Data masking
Workato job history stores data going in and out of every recipe step. In certain use cases there may be sensitive information e.g. employee SSN, date of birth, etc. that should not be visible to Workato account admins.
Data masking enables users to disable display of data at the step level. i.e. users can control display of job history data at every step.
Its important to understand that even when data masking is enabled, data for this step is actually stored within Workato, it is just disabled for display purposes.
From a security standpoint, Workato stores all customer data in encrypted form.
Data masking is only available for certain plans. Check the Pricing and Plans page or reach us at +1 (844) 469-6752.
