1. A new window will open. First you can select which words should not be scanned as sensitive data – Ignore list – (e.g., your company’s name). Your account manager will already have setup a few words to be kept company-wide, but you can always choose to override this.
2. Next, select the words that you would like to redact automatically (e.g., client names, employee names, etc.) and press “continue”.

3. Your file will be scanned for sensitive information, and you can now unselect any words that were found that you might want to keep visible

NOTE: Images cannot be scanned, you will have to redact those manually.

4. Click “Redact selected” to remove the selected sensitive information and download your file.

5. A new file will open, and your selected content will have been redacted.

That’s it! Your slides can now be redacted, and you can feel safe from being responsible for any breach of information.
