It's never a bad idea to remove your personal information from a file before you share it. Office applications may store personal information in every file you create. This means that anyone who receives this file has your information. To remove it:
Save a copy of your file.
First things first. If you plan to remove personal information from a file, you may not be able to recover the data if it no longer exists. In that sense, having a backup file is a good idea. Make sure that you not only have a copy of your original document, but also a distinct name to let you know which file is which.
For example, you might have a slideshow that you presented at a sales conference. After the conference, you may need to send this presentation to your customers. In this case, you want to make a copy of the original file and then remove your personal information from the client copy. You should also make sure that you do not send the wrong copy. Give her a unique name!
Once you have saved a copy of Open your file and remove your information.
Examine your presentation to remove personal information.
After you open the copy of the file from which you want to remove your information, select the File tab. After the selection, you are automatically on the sub-tab "Info". Click on the "Search for problems" button here.
Select Inspect Document from the displayed menu. “/>
Once selected, the "Document Inspector" window appears, tell PowerPoint which kinds of content to check by checking the box next to each option.
Then click "Review."

The test results are displayed. If you see a green check mark next to a section, no items have been found and no further action is required. However, if you see a red exclamation point, it means that information has been found in this section. Check it and then select "Remove All" from any group containing sensitive information.

Please review the document again. To verify that all data has been removed, click "Recheck."
