Most files contain metadata, which is information used to describe, identify, categorize, and sort files. For example:

  • Cameras record data about when and where a picture was taken and what camera was used.
  • Office documents automatically add author and company information to texts and spreadsheets.

Use mat2 to clean metadata from your files before publishing or sharing them:

  1. Open the Files browser.
  2. Navigate to the folder containing the files that you want to remove metadata from.
  3. Select the files that you want to remove metadata from.
  4. Right-click (on Mac, click with two fingers) on the files and choose Remove metadata.
