Did you know that when you share photos online, you put your privacy at stake – more then you imagine?
Your photos can tell everyone who’s watching them
- where you live
- where you spend your time
- when there is noone home
- where you park your car
- and other information that you wouldn’t want to tell
How does it happen?
When you take a photo with a smartphone or camera, it’s more than just an image. Most modern smartphones and some cameras can add exif data with geotags – information about the exact location where the photo has been made. And anyone watching your photo can get it.
How you can protect yourself?
You can turn off the GPS feature on your phone, but you might need it for navigation. And it won’t help you if you get images with geotags from other sources – such as your friends.
The best way to make sure there are no geotags in your photos is to run a free scan with Geotag Security. How does it work?
- Download Geotag Security
- Select a folder to check
- Geotag Security will scan a folder, find any image files with geotags and remove EXIF data
How you can protect your family?
If you don’t want to compromise your family privacy with photos revealing location, you need to make sure that no member of your family is sharing photos with geotags. It is very easy to do with Geotag Security PRO. You just need to install it to all computers in your household and make it monitor folders where photos are kept. So now when a new photo with location data gets into this folder, Geotag Security PRO will strip geotags.
