Insert a section that appears only according to user's permissions

When editing a confluence page, is there a way to insert some text block / section that is only shown to specific users based on their permissions or roles ?

I know that a workaround may be to split the info into multiple pages and assign restrictions to every page separately, but this approach will force the privileged users to browse multiple pages to get the whole info they need.

Just noticed it and installed it. looks good for formatting, but actually the hidden sections can be viewed simply by viewing page source. This is mentioned in their documentation

Is there a special permission for viewing page source, which I can revoke from the users, to fix this leak in the add-on functionality ?
