Your vehicle is parked just outside your home, its safe right? The answer is simple. No your vehicle is not safe, even if it is right outside your window. Every time you take a picture with your camera phone or digital camera you are putting your vehicle at risk. How? Most digital cameras and cell phone cameras are equipped with geo tag software that contains GPS coordinates with the exact time the picture was taken.
Here is a great example of how this would put you at risk: You see your husband and kids playing football in the front yard. You snap a quick picture (your vehicle is in the background) and upload it on your favorite social network. You post, Sam and the kids had so much fun playing football in the yard, we can’t wait until we are getting ready take our nightly family walk, be back later to post some more. You just let everyone know where you live, what your family looks like, what you vehicle looks like and that you are not going to be at home. You have just made it really easy for a car thief to target you. The car thief knows what your family looks like so just by driving the neighborhood where you live they would know just how far you are from your home by passing you by in their vehicle. That only helps them to know how long they have to steal your vehicle.
Another example of this is taking a picture of your coworkers in the parking garage. You upload them to your social network, posting “Off work, It’s time for fun”. Sure enough, there is your vehicle in the background with the “usual” parking spot pointed out by GPS. The thief now knows what time you get off work, where you park your car and who might be looking out for your car, which might catch them trying to steal it in the parking lot. Do not let potential thieves know when and where you park your car.
