I keep project info in .org file together with passwords.

When I share a screen it is annoying to show passwords in a buffer accidentally.

I want to keep .org file in plain text format but mark some parts to be obfuscated or hidden or encrypted:

This is a normal text.
user: me
password: MAGIC{XXXX}

I want to be able to copy content marked as MAGIC as a plain text without a prompt for the decryption master password.

UPDATE I saw http://doc.norang.ca/org-mode.html#HandlingEncryption It encrypts entire section of org file and displays it in plain when prompted.

Displaying of passwords is dangerous. I want to hide them visually and without any manual instructions.
