Tech Bits: Remove Hidden Information in Office Files
You’ve worked hard and got feedback on an important document for your class or job and are now ready to submit it.
Be aware that unless you take precautions, you can easily include information that you do not want to make public. This can include revisions and review comments incorporated using the Track Changes feature, as well as personal metadata that Microsoft automatically appends to documents. Depending on the content, this information could place you in a compromising or embarrassing position.
Before distributing final electronic copies of your documents, get into the habit of making sure that review comments and hidden information are removed. To learn how, see Removing hidden information from Microsoft Office files.
