My boss saw me tweaking some css via chrome devtool on a prod website.
"Oh, isnt that our html code ? So every one could see it ? You should find a way to hide it, this is not an open source project!"
Didnt even knew how to answer ._.
This not how it works ...

    Real test was how he responded when you explained the situation to him. Did he change his mind or did he keep insisting you "fix" it?

    I don't mind people who lack knowledge. It's the ones who press on in the face of facts to the contrary that piss me off.

    Recommend him to read this article:

    Specially “The Bottom Line” section.

    And try to highlight this line for him:
    “In the end, the only sure fire way to make sure no one can steal your source code is to never put it on the Internet at all.”

    I remember in my first company I was given specific orders from my senior devs to never open UI infront of my project manager untill it's too late for him to screw things up.

    So... Just use some jsx in react and before sending it to a browser obfuscate it. That way, he won't be able to "see" the code himself :P

    This is a joke obviously

    Yeah when this shit happens you need to educate them. Otherwise they will assume you’re the retarded one.

    @PrivateGER Well I'm no frontend expert, but with devTools "they" could still get the image resources... For total security better turn the webapp into a desktop app XD
