Clean metadata of your files in Linux

Many people have been betrayed by metadata… GPS coordinates in a photo, a person’s name in a Word document, an IP address or a company name in a PowerPoint and so on.

If you are concerned about the traces you leave online, I strongly urge you to clean up the metadata of the files you share.

How? ‘Or’ What ? Well, in Linux, the Metadata Cleaner software will help you view and erase all this sensitive information.

Just install the tool with Flatpak and then tell it which files to clean. Then click on the red “Clean” button and your documents will automatically be emptied of all information that can be traced back to you.

On the other hand, keep a copy of your files before going through the mill, you never know.
