Censor Keywords Appearing On A Page

Detect a keyword and censor it, sourced from Google Sheet

by @pixies


How to Use

Censor off-brand words on your screen. Great way to make any angry responses from customers a bit less disheartening to look at.


Google Sheet: You will need a Google Sheet with a tab named Off-brand Words with the first column named Type and the second named Keyword. In the Type column, set the value to Off-brand and type the keyword you want to be alerted about in the Keyword column, like this! Keywords are case sensitive, so make duplicates with upper and lowercase if you want to catch them all.
