Transaction Monitoring Password Mask

Having set up a couple of transaction checks on pages we have come to question the level of security around passwords used in the transaction steps.

Is this data transmitted via SSL?

Can you add a feature to mask specific text in the transaction steps to mask passwords?

Hi Findlay, 


Afraid that at the moment it's not something we're planning to do. The data in transaction checks is securely transmitted internally with Pingdom, and transmitted over SSL depending on the configuration of the site you're testing.

We'd still advise you to use test accounts for services you check just to be on the safe side though.
