Chapter 1. What's New in Word 2002 > Security and Privacy

Security and Privacy

Word 2002 introduces several new features that can help you secure your documents and computer against fraud, viruses, and invasion of privacy:

  • You can use digital signatures in your Word documents, helping to ensure that your documents (and those you receive) are valid and have not been tampered with.

  • You can set Word to remove personally identifiable information from your files (such as the author's name typically placed in the Properties dialog box. To do so, choose Tools, Options, Security; then check Remove Personal Information From This File On Save (see Figure 1.8).

  • You can disable (or simply not install) the Visual Basic for Applications components that macro viruses rely on to perform their dirty work.
