this article states that :
NonSerializedAttribute – If a class is marked as Serializable then all the properties can be serialized. For example, if we have a User object that has properties like user name, password [not in encrypted format], role of the user, etc. then such kinds of crucial information can be leaked out if serialized. We have the NonSerializable attribute that helps us in marking a property as not serializable.
however, this is totally incorrect. You cannot use the NonSerializable attribute on a Property. It is for fields only, and will generate a compiler error.
