Hey Bees, I may be a little late to the game on this one, but this video is downright scary. It explains how we can be tracked through our smartphones with pictures we’ve posted online. Apparently it’s called geotagging (like I said, I’m probably late to the game…not the quickest one with the latest & greatest technology lol). I just thought I would post this so if anyone regularly posts pics of themselves or loved ones online from the smartphones…now you can know how to turn that feature off.
It kind of reminds me of the bee the other day whose ex found an email that she said he couldn’t possibly know about. Makes me wonder how many of us can be tracked without even realizing it. Anyhoo…here’s the video.

Yeah, I remember when my camera on my iPhone would ask me if I wanted it to locate my area and I’d always hit disallow or whatever. I just thought it was completely weird that my photos could be pinpointed to an area when there’s no reason for it to be. Thanks for sharing the video.

In disabling the geotagging does that mess with your ability to use google maps or to use gps to find other things?

@MsBrooklynA: There are two ways to disable on most phones. One disables just the geotagging on photos (through the camera menu), the other disables all of your gps related stuff (through the settings menu). It explains the difference in the video + in the link I shared above ^
