We've recently realized that reviewers can access author information in MS Word by seeing the file Properties. Is there any way to avoid this?

It is important to manually remove this information from the Properties of any Word files submitted to reviewers. There is no built-in utility in OJS for this.
However, the following line should be included in the author submission checklist:
"The author's name has also been removed from the document's Properties, which in Microsoft Word is found in the File menu."
You may wish to make it a separate checklist item for emphasis.
Also, if you submit PDFs, you can use the PDF Anonymization Utility:
