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 was great! I loved using it when I needed it.... Accept, now it's been a few years and I want to know what I wrote down, BUT I CAN'T REMEMBER MY PASSPHRASE; so I am now pulling my hair out of my head trying to remember! XD :'(

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.

I did not change or forget my password. Not sure what happened but it stopped working. Make sure you keep a backup of the data somewhere.

Hard to understand at first, but works ok. I wish that they didn't update it, cause it seemed easier for me to do it back then. Though I can't figure out how to change the colors of the secret(the bold color) cause I don't really like all the colors that they give you.

Encryption works, a little slow and it doesn't seem to maintain formatting/multi line stuff.

INSECURE! It gives a password hint that reveals half of the keyspace.... VERY BAD!
