Masking CC and other personal details from an external developer
We are about to employ an external developer to do some upgrades to our site. They’ll have access to both Magento and CPanel so as a result they’ll be able to see everything in the SQL database and hence people private details.
Is there any way that we can lock out this section to an admin level but still allow the developer to both upgrade Magento and install a new shopfront?
