    Data Masking Tx is used to mask user sensitive data. For example we have a column which holds data like Social Security Number or Credit Card detail. No business would like that this sensitive data be disclosed to anyone as all the business is on trust.Therefore in order to keep user data secure we can use DataMasking Tx.
