currently I am creating many pdf and I want to share them with others. However, I don't want everybody to see all the information of the author. I don't mean information which is visible within the pdf like text or images. I am thinking of information which can be found out e.g. in the settings. 

Is there any information like this visible and if so, how can I delete it.

Thank you!

Hi Odin,
If you are using a PDF Viewer, like PhantomPDF, you can go into File --> Properties and change all this information. 

If you are using an SDK you can programmatically change information using the correct function. For instance in Quick PDF Library the'SetInformation' function will assign all these values (

I hope this answered your question.
