Have you ever turned off your phone camera’s location settings? If not, chances are that you’re photo includes the location where it was taken. So, if you share the photo, you’re also disclosing your GPS coordinates.
Make Photos Safe Again! Remove EXIF Data from Images
If you’re like me, you don’t want to get tied up in some complicated, rigorous process just to strip a photo you want to share of its location data. Fortunately, I can help!
Simply download and install an image compression tool (such as ImageOptim for Mac). Next, before you share your photo or upload it to social media, drag your photo into the app.
ImageOptim will save the “stripped” version with your image’s original name. If you use a different app, you’ll need to save it first.
VERIFY! that you’ve stripped EXIF data from your image
Don’t make any assumptions. Before you share your image, verify that the EXIF location data has been removed.
On a Mac, from inside Finder, simply open your image in the Preview app. Next, click “Tools” on the menu. Afterward, choose “Show Inspector.”
In the Inspector window, click on the info circle. If you don’t see an “EXIF” tab in the window, you know that you’ve stripped the location data from your image.
Sure, this takes about 30 seconds to do, but isn’t your online privacy worth it?
