    Summary

    The CSS backface-visibility property determines whether or not the back face of the element is visible when facing the user. The back face of an element always is a transparent background, letting, when visible, a mirror image of the front face be displayed.

    There are cases when we do not want the front face of an element to be visible through the back face, like when doing a flipping card effect (setting two elements side-to-side).

    This property has no effect on 2D transforms as there is no perspective.

    Syntax

    Formal syntax:  visible | hidden 
    
    backface-visibility: visibility
    
    backface-visibility: visible
    backface-visibility: hidden
    

    Values

    visibility
    Is a keyword indicating if the backface must be visible or not. It can have the following values:
    • visible meaning that the back face is visible, allowing the front face to be displayed mirrored;
    • hidden meaning that the back face is not visible, hiding the front face.

    Though not opaque, the front sides don't allow the
    back faces of the hidden sides to be displayed.
