Your kids can be tracked by a smart phone picture!
This is disturbing. Anyone who takes pictures with their smartphone runs the risk of the location the photo was taken being mapped out down to the exact spot by on-line bad guys.

Do you want someone to follow your child's picture back to their bedroom, or the playground where it was taken?

This is normally not enabled by default because it is a privacy thing. So unless you explicitly turned it on, this isn't a problem. And if you turned it on, you're stupid for doing so.

People have been able to do this since the first iphone came out. Its all encoded in the exif gif data.

He is a site that you can do it on.

up load or link a photo from a smart phone, it will show you time date and GPS location of when the photo was taken.

facebook removes exif data....

most sites nowadays remove and reformat photos.

because if they didnt , and something happen with tracking from their site , they could be sued .

the implication is that pedophiles will stalk your kids


there are kids everywhere so why would a pedo go to the trouble of finding YOUR kid with exif data? seems like just more fear mongering

OK I get it. I knew about metadata, but this was still news to me. I resisted getting a smart phone for a long time, till a certain young lady asked me if I would like some "interesting" pictures of her. Bought one the next day.

Somebody else may be new to it and I certainly think it bears repeating. It's just a few temporarily sequestered electrons, guys - it ain't asking you fer' sandwiches or cold beers, fer cryin' out loud.

Re: Your kids can be tracked by a smart phone picture!
The latest case I had, the wife had been sending pics of her softball nights with the girls to the the husband since spring.

We looked at the EXIF data. Turns out she had taken them at different times and places and was using them as stock photos on the nights she was with her boyfriend. Neither of them knew about EXIF.

Busted.

Now they're divorcing.

She doesn't even play softball.

My kids don't have smart phones or even dumb phones.

There is a word in English that is spelled, N... O...

It spells NO.

You want a phone?

Tough shit.

i have a smart phone... i call it my tracking device...

i have to put it on at work, and then it goes off.
i have to use it in silent mode at work, and never check it whilst i am there

i have an answering machine at home.
if people want me, they can call me. if i want to answer, i will, and if i dont? they can leave a message.

any other time, my time is my own, and i don't like being distracted by randomness at the beck and call or whim of others.

people think i am a little stubborn about it.

and yes, yes i am.....

i am driving a car, not pulling over for idle chit chat and the rest...

i am resting listening to the birds and watching the sun go down, not freaking out about your diatribe about appointments i have to attend tomorrow, not during my evening bliss, the meeting? i will deal with this at the time that was allotted to it...

life is good that way, everything in its place, turn turn turn....

Instagram has a key on the user's home page, if activated, just tap and Google maps take you to the spot where every photo was taken.

because something is in the realm of possibility, even if it has actually happened once or twice or 1000 times, still doesn't make it something to be afraid of, to worry over, to change your life because it "could" happen

it is much much more likely that pedophiles will stalk your children at school

I would pull your kids out of school and homeschool them before I would get all worried about exif data

I just use a pay phone if a need to call someone.

Happens about once a year.

I guess I'm old school.
