  7. Click on Blur this recordings and clipsblur_clips.png
  8. Click 'Confirm' in acknowledgment that once that interview is blurred, it cannot be undone.



NOTE: If the recording is long, It takes a few minutes to generate the blurred recording. You can give it a few minutes refresh your recordings page and play the recording again.


TOP TIP: Make sure to unclick the 'Anonymize Recordings' setting if you do not need recordings outside of the ones you needed to go back and anonymized. Leaving the setting on will ensure all future recordings will be anonymized in real-time and cannot be undone.

Stimuli will be blurred. However, Whiteboard snapshots will not be blurred in the recording.
