Filters Visible When exporting a visual

Hi, 
I have applied a few filters on some of my tables, and the filter pane is hidden from the end users.
When I export the table to an excel sheet, the filters are visible in the sheet. This is a security risk, and needs to be avoided. 

Any way to hide the filters from the Excel sheet?

@AlexisOlson Thanks for youre reply!

Turns out all i needed to do was "Hide" the column in the report view. That way the exported table wont have any data about the filters. 

Also, the report was embedded, so the filters were coming from somewhere else and i had no control over it.

Not necessarily a great option but if you apply filters in the query editor (instead of after loading the data), then they won't show up in exported data.
