If I share an interactive Google Spreadsheet using File > Publish to the web... does this spreadsheet include any personal information from my Google Account (eg. Full Name?)

If it does (somewhere in the docs.google.com hosted page's source code), is there a way to privately share this spreadsheet without this personal data?


Short answer

Publishing to the web doesn't include private information other than the content of the file. Only one file property/meta-data that is shown in a published document is the file name.


In the Google Docs editors argot, "publishing to the web" and "sharing" are two different and independent features. The related help articles are included in the references section.

Usually the Google Docs editors official documentation mention the included features, not the missing ones.
