Most files contain metadata which is information characterizing the content of the file. 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 MAT to clean the metadata from your files before publishing or sharing:

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