And so do the rest of people with access to your online pictures!
While we are in no mood to pull off a light one on you, we want to share a common mistake that most travelling enthusiasts and bloggers commit.
Leaving geo tags on for easy trailing and break ins.
Did you know that with very geo tag enabled picture, you leave information about:
- Where you stay
- Your frequented places
- Timing of moving to and fro different places
- Where your car is parked
- Other spatial and temporal information you wont like to share
What it means is you let people
- Follow you
- Stalk you
- Steal from you
- Spy on you
You might ask HOW!
Geo tags store your spatial information and embed them in your images captured through latest smart phones or any GPS enabled devices. And as we all love tagging and titling the pictures, we end up leaving address of our workplace, our house and places we visit for people we don’t want to update.
