The word “obfuscate” means to make something unclear, confusing, or difficult to understand, typically by intentionally obscuring or complicating it.

Interesting fact: The word “obfuscate” comes from the Latin word “obfuscare,” which means “to darken” or “to obscure.” It is derived from the combination of the prefix “ob-” (meaning “against” or “in the way”) and the verb “fuscare” (meaning “to darken” or “to make dim”).
