Find and Identify Hidden Data & Metadata in Files With

Hidden Data Detector™ 1.7

Free Hidden Data & Metadata Risk Assessment Tool

Released on April 15, 2024   

Hidden Data Detector™ is a free tool to quickly detect and identify hidden data & metadata in files.

With Hidden Data Detector™ you can assess the risk of sharing files that contain potentially confidential and private hidden data, and evaluate your need for a comprehensive hidden data removal solution.

Hidden Data Detector™ can analyze Microsoft Office® documents (Word, Excel®, PowerPoint®), LibreOffice® documents, PDF documents, JPEG, JPEG 2000, PNG, and WebP image files, SVG graphics files, AVI and MP4 video files, and WAV and MP3 audio files. Hidden Data Detector™ alerts you if properties, tracked changes, comments, presentation notes, or other types of hidden data & metadata are present in your files.

Please note that our hidden data removal tools (such as BatchPurifier™ and ConfidentSend™) can remove more hidden data types than the ones reported by Hidden Data Detector.
