Newcomer homepage: Anonymize email address shown in the Start module
Open, Needs TriagePublic


The Start module on the newcomer homepage shows the user's email address if it has been entered and pending confirmation, or has been confirmed.
This is a potential privacy concern for users who may be viewing their homepage in a public space and do not wish others to see their email address.

Proposed solution:
Partially hash out the email address so that only the first letter of the address and the domain suffix (TLD) is shown.
The format will be <first letter of address> +******@******.+<domain suffix> (sample result <r*******@******.org>)
(We still want to show part of the address as a prompt for users if they see the email needs to be verified/changed)
