I'm new to Adobe and I created a PDF. In Properties, Advanced, under Location I do not want to show the location of the file. How can I delete the location so the reader cannot see it?

 

Thank you.

What you see in the Location field is the current location of the file you just opened, not where the file originated from. If you were to move the PDF file to a different directory and opened the file again, the location would reflect the new directory it is stored in.

 

No, there is no way to mask that field. It is not breaching any security by giving away any information as to source of the file.
