Step 2: Navigate to the control menu on the left side of the screen and click on the blur tool icon

Step 3: Select between region based and element based blurring.

For region based blurring: Select the region that you intend to blur. Please note that if you scroll up and down, the selected region will move with the screen movement. This may result in the hidden content being revealed.

The second button allows you to select particular elements of the screen.

For element based screen blurring: When you select an element of the screen to be blurred, the element remains blurred even if you scroll up or down on the screen.
