Local Real Estate Comments and Ramblings

Your photos can reveal your location ... beware!!!

Your pictures can reveal your location.  Beware!

Wow this is  really creepy.  All those cool pictures that we upload to facebook, twitter, etc. are geo tagged.  It's pretty simple to get the background information and determine the location a photo was taken.  Here is a video from the Kim Komando techie website that explains the process.

The good news is that all you need to do is turn off the geo tagging on your phone.  In the video it show how to turn the feature for Iphone users.  On my Android I just opend up the camera, then menu and then unchecked geo tagging.  Easy!

You want to keep this feature in mind and there may be instance where you might want the geo tagging on such photos of your listings, maybe vaction pics, etc.

I hope this makes your day a little safer :-)
