I have a preference center that is also accessible from the homepage (non-cloudpage) via an email entry form. When that form passes through and returns a valid record, it fills out the subscriber's info. I'd like to mask PII fields with
***** ****** or
Kat** S***** similar to that of a type=password field.
Here's the question: Can I just change over the types of the input fields to password? In doing so, when the subscriber changes their email preferences/interest (non-PII fields), will the form pass through the starred values or will it pass through the original data extension value, or whatever they've updated that field to?
