Sensitive Metadata

Previously any additional metadata requested for your previews like OCR text was stored in our servers. This allows applications to retrieve a preview via the API. Some users were concerned that we were storing OCR text requested for their possibly sensitive files.

Today we’re announcing that we’ve added a new feature to address this concern. When creating your application you’ll be able to disable storing all metadata including OCR text. This means that metadata will only be available to your application once we notify it via webhooks.
