I'm not writing this to scare you, and I'm not saying abandon this forum. This is simply a warning, and a plea for you all to be careful. With all the new phones these days are coming a slew of new features. Nice, high-resolution cameras, features that make them easier to use, and GPS devices in the phones themselves. I've seen a lot of people taking pictures with their phones of activities and projects, and posting to this site. So, as a part of my lurking, I had been thinking about security, and I was sitting on my porch and fiddling with my phone and I took a picture of the beautiful sunset. I noticed that my phone's GPS was turned on, and that got me thinking. After a bit of fiddling, I found that the pictures I take with my phone (An android device, which I opted IN to google's anonymous GPS data collection bit with.) are tagged with EXIF data that includes my Co-ordinates that can be quickly looked up online with a free service such as this. Watch yourselves guys, this may be a nice place to have a chat, but it's also a high-ranking, easily found online board. I can't help but think that there is a possibility that LEO could conceivably use the pictures you post against you, especially if they're strapped for cash in this economy. PLEASE. Take two seconds and check your pictures through an EXIF viewer before you post them here. It may be a hassle, but what is your safety worth?
