# More information on LWM

  • In LWM the wallet is still usable, which means input field information isn't hidden.
  • LWM only masks the surface. This means if you request sensitive information to be seen in LWM mode, for example like clicking on an expander, LWM won't hide the content.
  • Some justification of design decisions can be seen here.
