Mask with a Specific Token

With this approach, data is masked according to default token types (Text token, Special Token, Numeric Token).

  • The ProtectoVault object is instantiated with your tokenization key.
  • The function takes a list of values as input, intending to mask them using the default token.

Learn more by checking out the section on Supporting Token and Format Types.


To obtain the <auth token>, please refer to the Step-by-Step Guide to Obtain Your Auth Token.
