Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Obfuscated"

Synonyms of "Obfuscated" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre obfuscated e confused ?
A: Obfuscate (Hard to pronounce lol) means to deliberately make something obscure, unclear, or unintelligible. It is generally synonymous with lying and underhandedness.

You do not hear this word too much in everyday speech. Usually there's a simpler word we could use instead. Such as, "cover up," which I would use more often.

In writing or maybe a news report they have something like,
"The secretary of defense obfuscated the report on alleged harassment taking place in his office. After this was revealed earlier today, many prominent figures are calling for his resignation."

I guess when you use that word, it makes you sounds more sophisticated.
