Metadata is commonly known as "data about data", in others words, metadata represents additional information that is included in some files which are usually hidden. This information is useful in collaborative environments, but if the user is unaware of this content, metadata could be used maliciously by revealing important and confidential information. Therefore, before sharing your documents, you should not forget to edit and/or clean metadata that can reveal unwanted information.
