Microsoft Office and other Windows Applications store all sorts of personal information when you save a file. Your name, computer name, company, date and time last edited are all examples of data included in a simple Word document file.
If you are concerned about your privacy there is an easy way to strip this information from a file.
- Right click on the file and select Properties
- Click on the Details Tab
- Click Remove Properties and Personal Information on the bottom of the window
- Select Remove the following properties from this file option and check all the items you want to remove. I suggest using the Select All button.
- Hit OK and you are finished. All personal information is now removed.
