Enable Agent Masking in a Conversation

When the end user should not see the name and image of the human agent in the chat, the Agent masking option can be enabled in the Account Settings by your administrator.

Activating the Enable Agent masking setting masks all agent's personal information, such as name, email, and profile images. For example, the agent name Max Mustermann would turn into Agent x4gH5tZ. Only the agent himself can see the clear name. Only the agent can see the original name, so there's no way for anyone else in your organization or the end user to link the masked name to a real human agent.
