Too much information. GPS in your camera and the ramifications

By
Home Stager with Stage-Show-Sell

When I first noticed that my new phone camera could see exactly where I was taking the photo, I didn't think much about it.

After seeing this video I just might turn that feature off (If I can)

I have two facebook accounts and one is strictly for my family.  It's OK that they know where where I am.  In fact it's rather prefered.   The security of this account is pretty tight.

 

My business account shows pictures of the before and after staging and seldom do I give the address.  With this feature anyone can see the location of the house.  Good idea or not I'm not sure.

Now I have to check the settings in my real camera because this is the real one that I use.  It's a wonderful camera, FUji Film FinePix 8000, and I'm hoping the technology on it is too old for this feature.

 

Be careful, are we putting too much information out there with our gps in our camera

Thanks for the reminder, Virginia.  I've turned off the GPS on my phone... now if I can only figure out how to do it on my camera, I'll be golden.

I would think that you could turn off the gps feature on your phone before taking any pictures.

I shocked myself yesterday. I googled white pages and searched my plumbers name to find his home phone number, he wouldn't answer his mobile. No phone number, but it did give me his home address, his wife, and their age? I'm afraid were all too findable.

Jeana,  You are so smart to turn it off

Larry, sorry I must have missed that blog BUT it does need to be out there again for those members like me who didn't catch it.

Marcia, When you figure out if it's on the camera let me know

Katherine, I'll drink to that.

Sherry, it's really scary when you see how much is out there.  It's like big brother is watching us and putting on the internet

Frightening.  I will have to check my phone.  I don't think it has it, or it might be shut off because I checked some pics I took with it and I couldn't find anything like the example in the video.  So there was no mention in the video of what to do to prevent your pics from giving the info.
