  2. Select the Session Replay, scroll map, form analysis option.

Configuring field content recording

Session Replay records user actions on a site, including filling in fields, such as the act of filling out a form. However, Yandex.Metrica recognizes fields where users might enter confidential information such as their first and last name. The contents of these fields are automatically masked with asterisks.

If you don't want Session Replay to record the content of any fields, disable the Record all fields option in the Session Replay tab in Settings.

You can also prevent individual fields from being recorded by using a CSS class (the class attribute).

  1. Enable the Record all fields option.
  2. Set the CSS class -ym-disable-keys for the fields that you don't want to record the contents of. Use this class for textarea and input elements.

Session Replay will record all fields except the ones that are marked with the -ym-disable-keys CSS class. Content of fields marked with the ym-disable-keys CSS class will be replaced with asterisks.

The page content in the recording may be different from the actual content. It's likely that the CSS on the site frequently changes. In this case, add the content hash to the style file names. Then, when you change file content, its name will change. For example: style.390b32d4d49d5e7d.css will be changed to style.0c573d460df87d4de5a4.css. This lets Session Replay use the style that the site visitor sees when it records a session.
